The due date to submit applications for the COVID-19 lockdown relief for working members, has been extended, following Government’s announcement for the extension of the containment period.

The relief will now close on Monday 17 May 2021, and not today, as earlier announced.

Fiji National Provident Fund Acting CEO Viliame Vodonaivalu said the closing date for the relief has been extended to enable members to submit their applications.

A total of 6,632 working members have been paid $1.45 million for the COVID-19 lockdown relief, which opened last week on Monday 26 April, 2021.

This payment is specifically for working members who are unable to go to work due to the lockdown restrictions and are not accessing any of the active COVID-19 relief phases, as well as whose wages have been impacted either through reduced or no pay.

Altogether, 10,797 members have applied for this relief – up by 8,920 from the 1,877 applications that had been received by Friday 30 April.

Fiji National Provident Fund members who applied for Phase 2 Round 5 will receive their payment today, Wednesday 5 May 2021.

Fund Chief Operating Officer, Pravinesh Singh, has confirmed that due to a system slowness issue, this has caused a delay in the payment for these members.

The Fiji National Provident Fund has announced today an additional relief for its members as it reopens the Phase 4 withdrawal scheme.

The Phase 4 Round 2 relief has also been extended to include the following groups of members:

i. Drivers for taxis/minibuses and hire vehicles;

ii. Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) – members operating small businesses.

From Wednesday 5th May, these members will be able to apply for a one-off payment of $220 from their General Account - no government top up will be applicable.

Fiji National Provident Fund members living or working in any of the lockdown zones will only qualify for the one-off relief of $220, if they are not accessing any of the active COVID-19 relief and are not being paid during the lockdown period.

The relief is for members who will not receive wages as a result of their inability to access their workplace because of the lockdown restrictions.This also includes employers who may have closed due to its high risk or non-essential services business nature such as barber shops, gyms, bars, etc.

Members who are currently receiving fortnightly relief payments for phase 2 round 5 or phase 3 round 4 do not qualify for this lockdown relief.
