The Fiji National Provident Fund has announced today an additional relief for its members as it reopens the Phase 4 withdrawal scheme which will include drivers for taxis, mini buses, hire vehicles and Small and Medium Enterprises members operating small businesses.

FNPF says from next Wednesday these members will be able to apply for a one-off payment of $220 from their General Account - no government top up will be applicable.

Acting Chief Executive Officer Viliame Vodonaivalu assured members that the Fund continues to take a member-centric focus in efforts to accommodate all segments of membership.

He says the additional relief will hopefully alleviate some burdens for their members in this lockdown period.

Under the criteria for Phase 4 Round 2 relief members must have at least one contribution paid between January 2010 and September 2019, have a minimum of $85 in their General Account, the amount that can be accessed is $50-$220 depending on the memberโ€™s general account balance.

FNPF adds there are no requirements for Phase 4 Round 2 therefore no forms are available and members wishing to access this relief must apply on the myFNPF App.

Members will also not qualify if they are already accessing Phase 2 Round 5, Phase 3 Round 4, the Voluntary relief or the lockdown relief for working members.
