Easy access for members

FIJI National Provident Fund members can now access their account balances from the comforts of their own homes or wherever they are.

This after the fund revamped its website and also created a SUPPERTxt (SMS) initiative where members can use their mobile phones to check their accounts at the end of every month.

In an interview last week, Fund CEO Aisake Taito said this was also one way of checking whether employee contributions were being paid by their employers or not.

"Instead of waiting for six months, people can just use their mobile phones to check their balances at the end of every month," he said.

"If their contributions are not being paid by their employers on a daily basis, they will know because their balance will not increase.

"They can always come and inform us and we will take appropriate action. For our website, we have revamped it last year to allow pensioners and members to check their balances online and also view our FNPF accounts and transactions for the past 12 months."

Mr Taito said pensioners could also download the renewal certificates and view their payment statements online.

"You don't have to fork out money to travel to our nearest office to check your balance."
