UIF unemployment benefits
When your employer terminates your service, you can apply to the Unemployment Insurance Fund (UIF) for benefits.
The benefits are only available to you if you have been contributing to the UIF while you worked. You cannot claim if you have resigned, been suspended or absconded from work. You may claim if the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA) considers the resignation as a constructive dismissal.
To qualify for benefits, you must register as a work seeker. You must apply for the UIF benefits as soon as you become unemployed or within six months of the termination of your employment.
The vision of the Unemployment Insurance Fund (UIF) is to strive to contribute to the alleviation of poverty in South Africa by providing effective short-term unemployment insurance to all workers who qualify for unemployment insurance and other related benefits.
The UIF’s strategic outcome-orientated goals are to: improve payment of benefits to UIF beneficiaries; improve collection of revenue from employers; participate in government initiatives to create and sustain decent employment; and provide effective administration of the Fund’s operations.
To pursue these goals effectively, five strategic objectives were identified: fund poverty alleviation schemes; improve governance; strengthen the institutional capacity of the Fund; encourage compliance through enhanced service delivery; and improve stakeholder relations.
