The Fiji National Provident Fund has processed majority of the applications that have been received for the COVID-19 withdrawal scheme.
A total of $49.1 million has been been out to 77,507 members to date.
Altogether, 86,854 applications have been lodged with the Fiji National Provident Fund.
With close to 4,600 members to be paid out this week, a total of 18,312 members were subsidized by the Government top-up, receiving more than $6.67m.
Chief Executive Officer Jaoji Koroi said that $42.4m of members’ funds has been withdrawn under this Covid19 withdrawal scheme.
Acknowledging that some members are still waiting, the FNPF apologizes for the delays they have encountered and assures that if they meet the requirements, they will receive their funds.
Mr. Koroi said the Fund has reverted to normal operations today, with a dedicated team tasked with processing COVID-19 applications.
The FNPF Valelevu Office which had been closed from 1st April, opened today and is now operating as normal.
The Fund is requesting members to make full use of services available on its digital platforms such as the myFNPF mobile app, Member portal or myFund, minimizing the need to physically visit FNPF offices.
