The Health and safety of over 600,000 members remains the focus for Papua New Guinea’s leading superannuation provider, Nasfund.
Since February 2020, measures have been put in place to ensure that members have convenient access to Nasfund services, without being unfairly disadvantaged. These measures have been in place for over a year now.
However, given the recent increase in COVID-19 cases reported nationwide, Nasfund would like to remind its members of the following measures that the Fund has in place, for the safety and wellbeing of Nasfund members, staff, and the general public.
No Mask No Entry
During this time, Nasfund will continue to implement strict health & safety measures at all its offices, branches and service centres, which includes a No Mask No Entry Policy.
This means you will only be allowed entry to our premises, only if you are wearing a mask.
This is in addition to compulsory temperature testing, and hand sanitation at all Nasfund locations.
Physical distancing continues to be implemented at our branches, services centres and offices.
Markers are being placed in branch to indicate where members can sit or stand.
These markers ensure a safe distance between members, and staff when interacting.
According to Nasfund Chief Officer Member Services Anne Wilson, the current measures in place are aimed at ensuring the safety of the Fund’s members, and staff at all times, without disruption to services.
“As part of ensuring that services continue, strict health & safety measures, including temperature testing, and physical distancing will continue to be implemented within our branches. These measures will continue for the foreseeable future.
It is important that as the largest superannuation fund by membership size, we take extra precautions, to protect the health and safety of our members.
During this time, we are encouraging our members to use our electronic channels and register on the Member Online Portal, and utilize the e-withdrawals option (email@example.com), which are much more convenient.
These electronic options are aimed at providing the services needed by members, at their fingertips, without the need to physically walk into our branches, which is also a safer option.
Let’s all work together to ensure that we keep safe at all times.”
