FNPF members who do not live in the identified Tropical Cyclone Harold affected areas but their homes were damaged will have to apply for the housing assistance scheme to repair their homes.
FNPF CEO Jaoji Koroi says majority of members contacting the Fund do not live in the affected area but their homes were damaged.
These members have been advised to apply for the housing assistance scheme to repair their homes provided they meet the qualifying requirements.
The Tropical Cyclone Harold withdrawal scheme only targets members whose homes were damaged and also reside in areas that were declared a natural disaster area by the National Disaster Management Office.
FNPF has received around 722 applications for the Tropical Cyclone Harold withdrawal scheme.
FNPF has paid out $797,194 to 606 members.
FNPF teams have completed inspection for the maritime zones – specifically for Kadavu, Vatulele and a few islands in the Lau Group.
