Following the announcement of the Supplementary Budget for COVID-19 and in collaboration with Government, the Fiji National Provident Fund will be working closely with Employers when it rolls out the COVID-19 withdrawal scheme for its members' through existing digital platforms.

The Fund is taking its cue from health advisories for physical distancing during this period and will be carrying out bulk of the withdrawal processes digitally. FNPF is liaising with Employers to ensure members in the affected areas that have been prioritized, are assisted.

General Information

  • COVID-19 withdrawal scheme will be provided to members whose employment or business has been directly impacted by the health or economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. There are two categories of members that qualify for this withdrawal.
  • For Category 1, the Government will subsidise the balance for members who have insufficient General Account eligibility.
  • The affected member will need to access the COVID-19 Withdrawal Application Form from his/her employer.
  • Payment options available are Direct Transfer to members’ bank account, Telegraphic Money Order through Post Fiji or M-Paisa.
