Fiji National Provident Fund’s COVID-19 Phase Two withdrawal which was to end with the fifth payment tomorrow, Tuesday 18 August, will now continue.
This means that members who continue to be unemployed or on leave without pay and have accessed their funds for Phase 2, are eligible to reapply and will continue to receive the $220 fortnightly payments from 1 September 2020.
FNPF members who have also recently been unemployed or are on leave without pay can also apply.
Fiji National Provident Fund Chief Executive Officer Jaoji Koroi said that FNPF is grateful that the Government will continue to top up those that have no balances in the General Account.
“We understand that members are still facing difficulties with the loss of employment and in supporting themselves as well as their dependents”.
“We will announce details on the withdrawal process shortly and also put in place validations to ensure that these members are genuinely still unemployed,” Mr Koroi said.
The Fund continues to plead with members to be honest with their employment or individual status when applying for COVID-19 withdrawals.
