The Fiji National Provident Fund will work closely with employers when it rolls out the assistance-program for members through existing digital platforms.
Assistance will only be provided to members whose employment has been impacted by COVID-19.
And this assistance is only for members who have a positive General Account balance.
The Fiji Government will subsidise the balance for members who have insufficient eligibility.
The affected member will need to access the Unemployment and-or
Lowered-Income-Assistance- Application Form from his or her employer.
Payment options available are Direct-Transfer to members’ bank account,
Telegraphic Money Order through Post-Fiji or M-Paisa.
This process is to ensure the avoidance of large crowds gathered in all FNPF offices- as aligned with the Ministry of Health-advisories on COVID-19.
To check whether your employer is on the list of companies that qualify for the COVID-19 $1000 and $500 assistance, go to the Fiji One News or FNPF facebook page.
