Update: 12:09PM THE Fiji National Provident Fund (FNPF) will only activate the natural disaster assistance for members once a state of natural disaster is declared.

FNPF chief executive officer Jaoji Koroi clarified this in a statement issued yesterday while considering assisting members whose properties had been affected by the recent flooding in the Western Division under the Natural Disaster Withdrawal Scheme.

“The details of the assistance will be confirmed over the next few days and the Fund would work closely with Government on this matter,” Mr Koroi said.

The Fund has also extended its sympathies and condolences to all those who had suffered from the flood.
