Workers for Fiji's National Provident Fund will work through the weekend to process applications for disaster assistance after Cyclone Winston.
The national pension fund's chief operating officer, Jaoji Koroi said it had received a huge volume of applications since the destructive cyclone, and had struggled to meet normal turnaround.
Mr Koroi said more than US$47 million had been paid out for 85,000 of the 146,000 applications received.
However, several applications were put on hold because of incomplete or incorrect forms, and 1,300 applications were only eligible for less than US$5.
The deadline for applications for the Cyclone Winston assitance is April 4th.
