UIF

 

 

We are a registered consulting company, specializing in claiming Maternity benefits, Illness benefits, Unemployment benefits, and Retirement benefits, as well as assisting with registering domestic and commercial employers and employees for paying UIF.

We will handle your entire claim from start to finish so you do not need to stand in queues or even call the UIF offices. We service the whole country but we work through the Department of Labour’s head office in Pretoria. We strive to make your UIF claim as easy as possible by handling everything on your behalf no matter where in South Africa you are. We provide all the relevant forms you may need for each claim, and we also provide step by step assistance with filling out your forms.

The unemployment insurance fund (UIF) gives short-term relief to workers when they become unemployed or are unable to work because of maternity, adoption leave, or illness. It also provides relief to the dependants of a deceased contributor.

  •               Unemployment insurance act, 2001 (the UI act)
  •       Unemployment insurance contributions act, 2002 (the UIC act)
