THE Fiji National Provident Fund (FNPF) and the Fiji Sugar Corporation (FSC) have signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to allow cane growers to become voluntary members and open accounts with the fund.

Following the signing in Lautoka yesterday, FNPF member services general manager Alipate Waqairawai said deductions would be facilitated by FSC.

Mr Waqairawai said the MOU provides each grower accessibility to the benefits and services FNPF's compulsory members enjoy.

"Each grower has the option of paying $7 each month or a little over $84 every year," he said.

"The deduction will be made from their third cane payment and if a grower is unable to make their annual payment within the third cane payment, then the deduction will also be made from their fourth cane payment into FNPF.
