Good afternoon to you all.

  • Firstly, I would like to acknowledge God for the gift of life and good health that enables us to continue to serve our members, under trying times with COVID 19 in our midst.
  • I, along with many other FNPF staff, have received our first dose of the vaccine and we look forward to getting our second dose in a few weeks’ time.
  • It is important that we are all vaccinated as this would enable the opening of our borders and the resumption of economic activities.
  • For our unemployed members, it would mean re-employment and the ability to provide for their families and save for their retirement.

Today, I will announce

  • the interest rate for the year.
  • the Special Death benefit cover
  • And, an additional product that we will introduce to help members continue to build on their retirement savings.

Members who missed the first round of the Lockdown Round 2 payment last week, will receive their funds tomorrow.

These members had submitted their applications before the deadline – 11 June, however, issues were encountered which contributed to the delay in their payments.

Fiji National Provident Fund Acting Chief Executive Officer Viliame Vodonaivalu said it was unfortunate that these members relief funds could not be paid on time, however, the Fund was rectifying the situation.

The COVID-19 relief for members who qualify under Phase 3 opens today Thursday 3 June 2021.

Phase 2 and the $220 Lockdown relief opens on Wednesday 9 June 2021.

This follows Government’s announcement of the extension of the phases for two additional payments, until the end of June 2021.

The contribution payment deadline for Employers has been further extended to the end of next month – June 2021.

The Fiji National Provident Fund had initially extended the deadline to 31 May 2021, however, given the continued lockdown, employers have been given another month as grace period.

“The prolonged containment period due to the risk of the coronavirus has definitely impacted a lot of businesses and we have extended the deadline for the payment of monthly contributions as a relief measure for employers,” said acting CEO Viliame Vodonaivalu.
