New Zealand Gotoarrow.png Pension Records

A pension is a fixed sum paid regularly to a person (or his surviving dependents) following his retirement from a company, government entity, or the military.

A pension record often lists a person’s name, date and place of birth, death date, occupation, and sometimes date of arrival in New Zealand and the ship on which he traveled. You will sometimes find the names of other family members in pension applications or records.

Locating Pension Records

The archives of the Magistrates’ Courts of New Zealand include some 1898 Old Age Pension applications. The archive is housed at Archives New Zealand. See New Zealand Archives and Libraries for the address.

The Family History Library has a few pension records.
