Aitape Members not forgotten
A recent trip to Aitape in the West Sepik province saw a keen interest by the public when the branch officer in charge (Tarzy Bunpalau) of the Vanimo branch visited contributing employers.
The officer visited seven employers with a total of 337 employees attending presentations on products and the processes involved to manage employer and employee contributions.
The trip was a first to the small township that saw a growing demand of small businesses wanting to join superannuation but are not subject to contribute with less than 10 workers as subject to the Superannuation Act 2000 but who can be captured in the voluntary savings product of EdaSupa.
The visit provided members to be assured that although the current stage of the roads or sea were rough and long to make it to the Vanimo branch, officers made it a priority to visit employers and members to update them of their fund’s activities to date.
The visited employers were happy that the fund had scheduled the time to sit down with them to iron out issues and answer questions that were at times very difficult to access due to communication and network problems in the area.
