The Fiji National Provident Fund has disbursed an early payment for members currently assisted for Phase 2 Round 5 of the COVID-19 Unemployment Relief.
A total of $5.8 million has been released to 26,463 members. The first payment for round 5 was planned for Tuesday 6 April but has now been moved forward due to the long Easter weekend.
Acting Chief Executive Viliame Vodonaivalu says that the early payment should give some members peace of mind during the weekend long Easter break.
“We have released the first payment to members who are already auto-registered and approved up to 31 March 2021. The remaining member’s whose applications are approved up to the first schedule deadline of 1 April, will be paid as scheduled on 6 April 2021”
The Fund acknowledges the assistance of the banks in terms of facilitating the payments for these members.
Members who opted for MPAISA and Post Fiji Bill Pay payment will still receive their funds next week due to usual disbursement processes.
The Fund has also sent out an SMS to groups of members whose applications are still being processed due to verification of contributions that have been received into their FNPF account. These members will not be paid until the verification process is complete.
The next payment for Phase 2 Round 5 will follow the schedule that has been publicised, which is 20 April 2021.
FNPF wishes all members and stakeholders a safe and restful Easter weekend.
