Woman wishes for NPF Policies to change

A 49 year old woman, Aimiti Toalepai who has been unemployed for a while urges to the Samoa National Provident Fund (SNPF) to reconsider their policies on the N.P.F contributions' withdrawal.

“I’m just curious because a lot of things happen to people before they reach their 65 years old and they have not even once touched their NPF money yet.”

“I am not trying to interfere with their businesses but I know for sure that I am also not the only one that wants to get a hold of their NPF money before they reach their 60s so I think it’s worth letting them know,” she said.

Mrs Toalepai is currently unemployed but she is earning from cooking the koko beans and sell them to the tourists and Samoans.

She added that she is proud she is living in Samoa while she’s unemployed because it would’ve been a different story if she was unemployed overseas.

“I mean for us the unemployed, we’re just lucky enough to have grew up in Samoa where food is found everywhere,” she said.
