FNPF has so far paid out $48,180 to 219 members as part of the lockdown relief and $35,765 was members own funds while $12,414 was topped up by Government.

Acting CEO, Viliame Vodonaivalu says their teams continue to process applications for working members who have applied for the lockdown relief and so far they have received a total of 8,163 membersโ€™ names from 366 employers.

Vodonaivalu says 518 members have submitted their applications however applications continue to trickle in.

He says they continue to face challenges with this relief โ€“ particularly, the timely submission of membersโ€™ names by employers.

Vodonaivalu further says this is a key part of the application process because they need employers to confirm that if their staff have had their wages impacted - either reduced or not paid at all during this lockdown period.

He stresses that they will not open up the preserved account, especially for those who have exhausted their general account balance.

The FNPF CEO says they will continue to explore ways, to assist our members but within the ambit of the FNPF Act.

Members can contact FNPF on 3307811, email information@fnpf.com.fj or reach out to the Fund on social media.
