Veteran SuperGold

Veteran SuperGold is a specially branded SuperGold Card to recognize service to our country in the Armed Forces.

Getting an automatic Veteran SuperGold Card

Once your Veteran’s Pension has been granted, the Ministry of Social Development (MSD) will automatically send your SuperGold Card in the mail. This usually only takes a few weeks, but you may have to wait a month or two if you apply for New Zealand Superannuation prior to your 65th birthday.

Applying for a Veteran SuperGold Card

If you do not receive Veteran’s Pension, you can still apply for a Veteran SuperGold Card. You must be 65+ years old and be a New Zealand resident and have Qualifying Operational Service.

To apply for a Veteran SuperGold Card please call or email us with the following information:

  • your SuperGold Card client number if you have one (found on the back of your SuperGold Card)
  • your full name while you were in service
  • your New Zealand Armed Forces service number
  • the branch of the New Zealand Armed Forces where you served
  • the war or emergency where you were deployed, including any additional information such as dates of deployment, location(s) and unit.
