Kiunga Branch Opening

Written: 31 January 2023

Nambawan Super Limited (NSL) is pleased to have officially opened its Kiunga Branch today with the support of its Members, Employers and community leaders from the area.

The Branch was opened by Nambawan Super Member representatives including Nurses, Police and Teachers, alongside NSL CEO Mr. Paul Sayer, Provincial Administrator Mr. Robert Alphonse Kaiyun and Governor for Western Province Hon. Taboi Awi Yoto.

The Kiunga Branch has been relocated to the WP Construction Limited building in the center of Kiunga Town as part of NSL’s continued focus on improving Member access to superannuation services in rural centres around the Country.

Mr. Sayer said, “the Kiunga Branch is now conveniently located within walking distance to local schools, Government offices, key state institutions and several other businesses which employ many of our Members in Kiunga”.

“It has also been upgraded to accommodate Members with three counters attended by our Member Service Officers; one self-service counter for ease of access; and one comfortable interview/meeting room that provides privacy for Members when discussing their superannuation benefits and retirement savings with us.”

“The Branch is fully air-conditioned, features improved staff and Member amenities, and it utilises a backup generator for the best Member experience for our over 3000 plus Members that live and work in Kiunga and the wider North Fly District within Western Province.”

“Kiunga is an important port town that is crucial to the success of one of the country’s largest mining operations, through its freight and haulage services. We expect that as the mine’s operations continue to grow, so will the number of opportunities for residents in Kiunga.”

“Kiunga has the potential to grow into a key industrial township in the near future and Nambawan Super looks forward to supporting our Members in Kiunga as they work and when they retire.

“Through this Branch we will continue providing our valuable superannuation products and services, to ensure that our Members have the chance to enjoy a comfortable retirement”, he added.

The relocation of the Kiunga Branch is part of NSL’s larger Branch relocation and improvement exercise that aims to bring services closer to Members’ doorsteps while also improving on the quality of services and facilities provided.

“In December last year, we also opened our newly relocated Daru and Wewak Branches and we plan to open our Wabag Branch later this month as part of this Branch relocation and improvement exercise”, Mr. Sayer added.

“All the relocated Branches have also been upgraded to improve on Members’ experience and ensure our staff have everything they need to deliver quality services.”

“Through this exercise, we want to ensure that we can provide the same welcoming look and feel that is now the standard for our 22 Branches Countrywide so that our Members receive the same level of services wherever they are.”

“At Nambawan Super, our Members are at the core of all that we do and as such we aim to continue delivering quality services while managing our investments to generate strong returns on Members’ savings so that the money they save today, grows over the long-term to help Members achieve their best retirement outcomes”, he concluded.
