FG Survival Fund Program 2021 for Nigerians: Application Now Open

Federal Government Survival Fund 2021 Application: Hope is not lost if you are yet to apply for the FG Survival Fund Program as another application round is open and on-going. Remember that a few weeks ago the Federal Government of Nigeria launched the Survival Fund Program targeted at individual artisans and small businesses. In a report, already FG has paid 59,000* artisan beneficiaries across 24 states (*the number of beneficiaries has long surpassed this figure by now).

The Survival Fund Program includes Payroll Support, Guaranteed Offtake and MSME Grant. The FG MSME CRM & MIS Platform, which is dedicated for the survival fund program, is to help with the digital registration, onboarding and management of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises for the program.

  • There are three categories of the program
  1. Payroll Support – assists in paying employees of a business
  2. Guaranteed Offtake – assists businesses to kick start or in rebuilding
  3. MSME Grant – free grants for Micro, Small and Medium sized Enterprises.
  • Any Nigerian with a running business (registered or not registered) can apply for either of the categories they qualify for.

  1. We got the survival fund for three months last year 2020 but to our surprise February 2021 N30,000. Was deducted from the company account and this June another credit negative N30,000. Was deducted from the company account. Our bank was contacted and claimed that it was from survival fund. We like to know are we paying back the fund? If not please let us know the narrative.

  12. sir i could not answer some questions correctly due to the critical condition i was in,does that means i am disqualified.when during registration i was verified.

    • Sir please I have registered for survival fund last year without using any certificate of CAC but almost two or three people called and asked if I received any alert of the survival fund and I answered and said no then they told me that the reason why I have not received the alert is that my BVN is reading two different date of birth so they said that I should go to the bank that I have done my BVN to update my account data or if my ATM card was with me I should disclose the ATM card information to them unfortunately enough the ATM card was not with me and I told them that it was not with me then they asked me to go and get it after I got it I tried calling them but their number were not reachable Since then I could not hear from them again Does it mean that I am not qualify to benefit from it? Please advise me because right now I am confused. Thanks

      • Neither your bank, nor Study Green or Survival Fund will advise you to disclose your ATM card details to anyone on phone. Please always go to the bank to sort yourself out on any issue concerning your BVN/bank account and never disclose your card details on phone call. Regards

    • Good evening,pls I will like to ask if d money is refundable. My boss said is refundable that I should pay her 20k. So I should take 10k
      That when we are to refund it he will pay d interest. Pls help I

  13. Pls i got referral for one fg some in January, yet to see any money, then in February, another one through Enugu State contacted me again though I got refered too and not the same amount with the previous one, I actually thought it’s a state thing that’s why I enrolled but found out now that it’s fg too but through that state.. just yesterday my friends got alerts from the state but I didn’t does it mean I won’t get? Or it might be I didn’t fall into that batch?

    • Good evening.

      I was among the first batch that benefited from the survival fund.I did not receive the second payment only the first and third payment last year.

      I am grateful thus far, I will really appreciate if it can be checked and rectified so I can receive the second payment. God bless!

  21. Good afternoon Sir.. please all the account has been verified and WHEN ARE THEY STARTING THE CALL AND THEMONET DISBURSMENT TO ACCOUNT

      • I think the right thing would be to get your line retrieved and kept active if that was the one used for the Survival Fund application.

      • The processing is in batches, I guess you should wait for the call if you did fill your application correctly.

      • My colleagues called me that they called them. I missed my own call because I was on a transcript and didn’t know when the phone rang. I have tried to reach the number that called me no response. Please what should I do now.

      • You don’t have to call them, they will call again. If your company is qualified and your colleagues too, then you can’t be disqualified. keep calm!

      • Please Sir, all my Staff have been verified, my business account number is of Union Bank, I queued it in correctly but it’s writing unverified till now and my BVN is writing NO_CHECK on my survival fund profile check, please Sir What do I do to get it verified or replace it with my personal account ??

      • Please admin,am a beneficiary of the payroll, but my company produce all the requirements,and I have trying to register but it ts not giving me a positive response, can’t I be I beneficiary again?

      • Hello Admin,
        Could you help to clarify this for me, please the payroll support for the schools are they meant for the school owners or the employees? The reason for this is that I have a situation where staff just benefited from this support and the school owner instructed the employee to transfer all the money into the school account.
        Your feedback will be highly appreciated clarifying this issue.
        Note: During the lockdown this particular school failed to pay s

      • I think it wrong for the school to request for the money, it was suppose to be for the employee’s salaries the school/business was unable to pay
