The Fiji National Provident Fund is providing a one-off COVID-19 relief for members impacted by lockdown restrictions in the Western Division.

This relief will open from Monday April 26, 2021, according to a statement from the Fund.

Fund Acting CEO Viliame Vodonaivalu said this relief would be a one-off payment of $220, given that the containment period was 14 days, which was equivalent to two weeks or a fortnight.

Those members living in the containment area and who were accessing phase two and three of the COVID-19 relief were not eligible for this one-off relief.

“In line with the Prime Minister’s announcement on Monday, the Fund has mobilised to ensure readiness when this relief rolls out early next week,” said Mr Vodonaivalu.

“Members who are unable to attend work due to the containment restrictions, will be eligible for this relief but will need to liaise directly with their employers.

“This also includes members who live and work in the containment area but their work place has closed for the lock down period due to its high risk nature.”
