Fund's initiative to identify clients

THE Fiji National Provident Fund has deployed a team of inspectors to visit rural and remote areas in the country for the purpose of identifying its members, voluntary scheme contributors and pensioners.

Fund CEO Aisake Taito told this newspaper during their expo in Labasa last Friday that the initiative was part of their reforms this year.

"FNPF has been sending out inspectors outside of the two main islands in Fiji.

"They have been visiting outer islands, remote areas, villages and settlements to identify people who have FNPF accounts with us," he said.

"This is also an opportunity for us to reach out to our members and pensioners with our services.

"There are a lot of positive changes taking place in the organisation and it's only proper that we inform them.

"In terms of our member services, early last year, we have diverted our services directly to the members who were affected by flood and cyclones, especially those in the West. By doing this, we were able to reach to our members more quickly and efficiently and also help them receive their money on time to rebuild their lives."

Meanwhile, Mr Taito said the audited financial results last year reaffirmed that FNPF was in a strong and sound position.

"Last year was a challenging period but we managed to pull through with our financial performance.

"This year, we have continued to recover the money that was borrowed from FNPF and this will continue until it's all paid."
