Call the executives

Salaseini Moceiwai

FIJI National Provident Fund members can contact fund executive members if they feel their contributions are not being paid by their employers.

Fund CEO Aisake Taito made the revelation during a public forum at the Labasa Civic Centre auditorium on Friday afternoon.

He was responding to queries raised by a member about how effective the fund's enforcement unit was in terms of monitoring employers who didn't pay employee contributions.

"You can access the mobile phones or contacts of any of the fund executives including me to inform us of your problems," he said.

"If you feel that your employer is not paying your FNPF contributions, you can always call or send us a text.

"You can give us your name, FNPF number and the company or organisation you work in."

Mr Taito said when they received such calls or texts from members, they sent inspectors to investigate the situation.

"Sometimes when members receive their wages slips, it shows their contributions are being deducted but when they check their FNPF statements, the amount doesn't increase.

"That's why it's important for members to always make an effort to check their FNPF contributions every now and then with us.

"Those employers who fail to pay their employees' contributions can face a hefty penalty."
