Struggling with money? Get answers with Sorted Money Week

Te Ara Ahunga Ora Retirement Commission’s Sorted Money Week is back for another year – Monday August 8th through Sunday August 14th.

Sorted Money Week is an annual awareness campaign that has shed light on all things money for the past decade.

This year, the goal is to give Kiwis the opportunity to ask the financial questions they have and receive personalized answers, helpful tools and other helpful tips.

Tom Hartmann, personal finance manager at, says: “Sorted Money Week gives you the opportunity to get the information and tools you need to make good financial decisions.

“Very often people don’t talk about money, but opening up and getting advice can make it easier to achieve your goals.”

Kicking off the week will be a series of free webinars and live events on a range of money-related topics.

The Public Trust and Sorted team up to present ‘I Just Wonder… About Death, Money and the Future’. The webinar examines financial well-being, with experts discussing these difficult questions that set us up for future success.

Sorted also offers Money Mind webinars that explore the “why” behind our financial decisions and how our relationship and challenges with money are shaped by our attitudes and beliefs.

“Many of our choices in how we handle money are the result of our personal tendencies, preferences, and habits,” says Hartmann. “The type of household we grew up in plays a key role – was it a calmer or more stressed environment? Did you have more open conversations about money or closed conversations?”

National Strategy for Financial Capability partners also joined us, with events from Kernel, and Ngai Tahu’s Whai Rawa, as well as community initiatives offering a chance to get involved and learn. more. A full schedule of Money Week events can be found on the Money Week Events Calendar »

Still have a burning money question? Kiwis are encouraged to go to and ask any money question they have during Money Week and get a personal answer straight to their inbox. Out of ideas? Beware of the most popular questions appearing on digital billboards in New Zealand cities.

Sorted at Work and Te whai hua – kia ora, Sorted in Schools are also partnering with Money Week to offer employees and students the opportunity to learn more about financial capability. Sorted at Work is offering 20 free Money Mind webinars and Sorted in Schools is hosting its own “I’m just wondering” question contest.

“Sorted Money Week offers the opportunity to gain knowledge about money and contribute to your personal well-being – by learning the skills that can form building blocks for your future,” says Hartmann.

“Make this the first step in your financial journey or know how to grow your money and create a legacy for yourself or your family. There’s no better time to start than today!
