We introduce FI-${\oplus}$-supplemented modules as a proper generalization of ${\oplus}$-supplemented modules. We prove that; (1) every finite direct sum of FI-${\oplus}$-supplemented R-modules is an FI-${\oplus}$-supplemented R-module for any ring R ; (2) if every left R-module is FI-${\oplus}$-supplemented over a semilocal ring R, then R is left perfect; (3) if M is a finitely generated torsion-free uniform R-module over a commutative integrally closed domain such that every direct summand of M is FI-${\oplus}$-supplemented, then M is a direct sum of cyclic modules.
