Customers seeking to withdraw their Fiji National Provident Funds early must submit a birth certificate.

This is to ensure credibility of members’ information and to safeguard members’ funds, FNPF chief executive officer, Aisake Taito said in a statement on Thursday.

The submission of birth certificates is compulsory with member’s first early withdrawal application received after November 1, 2014.

Customers who have already provided this to the Fund since November 1 will not require resubmitting their birth certificates for future early withdrawals.

Mr Taito said the submission of birth certificates was crucial to the updating of close to 400,000 members records held by the Fund.

“Birth certificate is a unique proof of identity for a Fijian and it is in the best interest of members to know that FNPF is mitigating every risk while safeguarding member’s records,” he said.

“There have been cases where some members have attempted to defraud the Fund regarding their withdrawal applications.

“The Fund will not take this lightly and intends to maintain strict measures to ensure safety of every member’s funds.”

Members will also need to provide birth certificates of those being assisted through the withdrawals such as member’s spouse, parents, siblings and children.

“The Fund appreciates your understanding and co-operation and request members to bear with us during this process,” Mr Taito said.  FNPF
