Labour is preparing to unveil its savings policy as it moves to kick of its election campaign.

Details of the party's proposals are to be unveiled this afternoon but there have been some signals about what they may, and may not contain.

Labour's Finance spokesman David Cunliffe has already described National's proposals on auto-enrolment in Kiwisaver as insufficient suggesting Labour will move further on compulsory savings.

A return to Government contributions to the Superfund is also likely.

Labour's consistently damned the Government for suspending them.

But what's likely not to be on the mix is raising the age of entitlement to national superannuation
