FNPF has paid 4,040 members $3.3 million for Phase 2 Round 7, Phase 3 Round 6, Phase 4 Round 4 and round 2 of the Voluntary members’ relief.

FNPF CEO Viliame Vodonaivalu says this is the first payment cycle for these members, whose applications were received and approved up to August 20th. These members will receive their second and final payment on November 24th.

Vodonaivalu says the payment for this round of FNPF Unemployment assistance is paid out in 2 installments. The first 50% of the approved amount will be paid out in the 1st payment cycle and the remaining 50% will be paid out in the 2nd payment cycle as specified in the payment schedule.

The next cut-off date for new Phase 2, Phase 3, Phase 4 and Voluntary relief submissions is September 3rd with the final date for submissions being September 17th.

Vodonaivalu also highlighted that more than 4,000 applications for the extended COVID-19 Relief phases were rejected by FNPF.

He says these applications were rejected for two reasons - insufficient General Account balance and members already accessing the Government’s unemployment assistance.

He adds they sympathize with these members but they have been clear about the qualifying requirements for the extended relief.
