GOOD news for those affected by Tropical Cyclone Evan as the Fiji National Provident Fund Board has re-activated the natural disaster partial withdrawal assistance of $1000 for its members.

FNPF acting chief executive officer Alipate Waqairawai said the approval, which includes the waiver of the $10 processing fee, was based on humanitarian grounds. "Whilst the fund encouraged its members to save for retirement, it recognises its role as a corporate citizen and stands prepared to assist its members rebuild their lives after the devastation of the cyclone," Mr Waqairawai said.

He said FNPF would liaise with government officials to determine who would be assisted, while deploying on-site teams to the worst affected areas from January 2.

"Members' applications will need to be verified by the district officers or delegated officials to ascertain damage to their properties. All applications will be received and verified by our inspection teams on-site to ease transport and other associated costs for members," Mr Waqairawai said.
