As more Papua New Guineans venture into Small to Medium Enterprises (SMEs), it is also important for these SMEs to save for retirement through an approved superannuation Fund.
The National Superannuation Fund (Nasfund) provides an avenue for SMEs to do so, through its Eda Supa product.
During its monthly appearance on Nasfund FM100 Talkback, the Fund’s Manager Business Development Melanie Lavaki, Team Leader New Business Hamilton Riman, and Team Leader Client Relations Raela Wari, provided an overview of Eda Supa, whilst also outlining its client relation engagements with members in the new normal.
According to Manager Business Development Melanie Lavaki, the updates provided in this monthly appearance were important, especially given the recent increase in the number of SMEs all across the country.
“With the changing dynamics of business in Papua New Guinea, more people are now venturing into the SME space, it is also important that a retirement savings culture is also promoted.
As the leading superannuation provider in PNG, our Eda Supa product provides the perfect opportunity for SMEs to save for retirement.
Eda Supa also extends beyond SMEs – it is also suited to people within the informal sectors – for our farmers, artists, landowners, and also expatriates.
Our engagement on Nasfund FM100 Talkback this month was used to ensure our current, and potential members were aware and informed of the requirements and benefits of savings with Nasfund.
The Fund will continue to engage through mainstream as well as social media, to encouraging our people to save for retirement through Eda Supa.
This is our part in spreading the gospel of superannuation, to ensure that our people who work today, save today, so that they are ready for retirement.”
