The Fiji National Provident Fund will be launching the new Provident Fund Management Information system or ProMIS by March 31.

Fiji National Provident Fund Chief Financial Officer Pravinesh Singh said “The updated system will cater for a data base of 395,000 customers and will include active and inactive members specifically those who have not been contributing consecutively for the last 12 months.

“Customers will no longer have to wait in long lines to get served, with this new program they can access all our services online through the internet be it on your computer or through your phone.”

Service

The system will serve a data base of 395,000  members and customers will be able to do online transactions, make payments online and post contributions simply by logging into the system.

“We will be connecting to smart phones for those based in the rural areas and those who have access to internet they will be able to log on easily onto our website.

Testing

The programme has completed the testing phase and ProMIS is ready to offer this service.

“We have had all the employer sessions where we let them test the system and even government has responded positively,” he said

However, FNPF will include strategies to avoid corruption in withdrawal through the online transactions.

Meanwhile, FNPF Chief Executive officer Aisake Taito said: “Strict withdrawal criteria’s are currently in place to avoid cases whereby people will try to fraudulently provide signatures to access members’ funds,

“This is a form of check and balance as we want to be transparent with the public,

“The idea of the strict criteria is to ensure that applications are processed in a more efficient and safer way,” he said.

Contributions

Concerns have been raised of some employers that fail to play their part by not deducting their employee’s contributions.

Chief Executive officer Aisake Taito said: “FNPF would be dialoguing with employers to find out why contributions of employees are not deducted and if need be further investigations will be conducted,

“Through legislations we are trying to ensure that employers pay their contributions on time and we will try and work with them.

“However, if we have exhausted all avenues we will have no choice but to use the law and take them to task,” he said.
