THIRTY two civil service retirees in the North are still part of the former government pension scheme.

Speaking at a Ministry of Finance workshop in Labasa yesterday, the ministry's principal administration officer, Malakai Tueli, said the retirees would remain in the former pension scheme until they die.

"These pensioners are civil servants who were part of the former scheme compared to the current scheme which has been taken over by FNPF," he said.

"The old scheme will only phase out once the pensioners or their beneficiaries die.

"We also have other pensioners around the country who we will be focusing on during this leg of our tour."

Mr Tueli said 12 officers from different government departments in the North were part of this workshop.

"These are personnel who deal with finance accounts and financial planning from their various departments.

"We are here to create awareness of the need for personnel to know government's intentions for capital projects.

"It is also a time for us to keep in touch with various personnel throughout the division who control their respective department's financial accounts."

Mr Tueli said they would also create awareness on Viti Levu and the Western Division.
