The Fiji National Provident Fund is investigating matters involving claims of unauthorized withdrawals.
There have also being issues of falsified documents provided for the early withdrawal assistance.
Chief Executive, Jaoji Koroi, says some cases are before the courts, where people provided false termination or resignation letters for unemployment assistance.
Koroi says members have been charged and imprisoned in the past and the fund will not hesitate to take those engaging in fraudulent activities to task.
He says penalties for fraud related offences vary according to the severity of the offence.
The Unemployment Assistance enables members to apply for a maximum of $2,000 from the General Account, provided they provide a letter from their employer confirming duration of employment and reason for termination or resignation.
