'Come to us'

Salaseini Moceiwai
Sunday, January 26, 2014

THE Fiji National Provident Fund is urging members of the public to visit their offices if they have queries about their services.

During a public forum in Labasa on Friday afternoon, fund assistant general manager member services Alipate Waqairaiwai said they had noted a few cases where people were being given false information about their services.

"If you want to know anything about FNPF, it's important that you come directly to us," he said.

"Don't get your information from the market, grog session or from your own house. Come to us if you want to know our services and operation.

"We have noted some cases where people have actually made decisions about their FNPF savings based on wrong information they get from outside sources and they are now facing the consequences of those bad decisions.

"We are requesting everyone to do the right thing and come to us to get correct information."

Meanwhile, Mr Waqairaiwai said anyone could become a member of the FNPF volunteer scheme whether they were farmers, housemaids, fishermen or market vendors.

He said the scheme would help people with their savings.
