SNPF introduces Digicel’s mycash app for Senior citizens


Senior citizens can now access their monthly pension on their smartphones, under a new joint initiative by Digicel Samoa and Samoa National Provident Fund (SNPF a.k.a NPF.)

Savali reported, in a joint press conference, the Chief Executive Officer of the SNPF Pauli Prince Suhren and Digicel Samoa Chief Executive Officer Seiuli Deepak Khanna says they have been working in partnership with Digicel for 16 years.

Their new initiative has been months in work which will ease queues at the SNPF buildings, and save money from travel during the payout of pensions to senior citizens every month.

Pauli said that senior citizens can receive their pensions through MyCash, says Savali reports. 

“They will have to register on level one of the SNPF building, and then they can use MyCash to receive their pension,” Pauli says.

The service is not only for senior citizens as Pauli announced that the service is also extended to all SNPF members who have registered and downloaded the app, as payments for loans can be done using Digicel’s MyCash.

Adding they want to use technology to the best they can to make it more efficient for our members. 

Seiuli said they are “taking a step in a new journey” with SNPF in Samoa’s digital economy in what he called a perfect partnership. “With SNPF celebrating 50 years it’s another amazing year,” Seiuli says.

He added that their MyCash app can be utilized for many things such as making EPC payments or purchasing items from stores such as Samoa Stationery and Books. “It is basically the digital wallet and the digital commerce platform coming together as one,” he says.
