THE FNPF will no longer assist parents pay for tuition fees at primary and secondary schools following government's assistance this year.

FNPF assistant general manager member services Alipate Waqairawai said educational assistance would only be made available to tertiary students.

He said the fund would only assist students not covered under the government's free school fees initiative.

"We are grateful to the government for paying the fees for primary and secondary students," Mr Waqairawai said.

"Now that government is paying school fees for these students, we will no longer assist parents except for higher education."

The FNPF has also extended its benefitting program to children six years and under and hopes to introduce this next year.

Mr Waqairawai said this was a new inclusion in the FNPF Decree 2011 designed at assisting children save for their future.
