Are you affected by changes to the Fiji National Provident Fund?

The new Fji National Provident Fund Decree introduces a number of changes to the pension in Fiji. If you are currently receiving a pension from Fiji, you should have received a notice from the Consulate-General of the Republic of Fiji Sydney. You should read that notice carefully and follow the instructions to secure your current or future pension entitlement.

The main changes introduced by the Decree include:

  • Existing pension arrangements will cease with effect from 1 March 2012.
  • A new age-based and sustainable pension rate will be implemented from 1 March 2012 meaning that the later you retire, the higher your pension rate will be.
  • Current pensioners will be given a refund of the original amount they had converted to pension to take as a lump sum, or they can choose one of the new pension options.

According to the notice, you must contact the Consol General’s Office to make an appointment BEFORE 29 February 2012.

As part of this process, you must bring a number of original identification documents and certified copies. Your birth certificate must be certified by a notary public.
