Outstanding UIF Payments To Be Made


The festive season can be tough for many people, especially those who have recently not been able to work due to COVID-19. Which is where UIF comes in, they have created a fund which provides workers with payments to help them while they are unable to return to work.

The Unemployment Insurance Fund (UIF) has decided to make outstanding payments to those beneficiaries who have not received their payments for the period between April and September 2020. 

UIF is an entity in the Department of Employment and Labour and the Temporary Employer/Employee Relief Scheme (Ters) has been established to provide relief to employers and employees in South Africa who are unable to work as a result of the current pandemic.

The outstanding payments have been made to ease the backlog in Ters payments.

The main reason for these backlogs includes the issues around bank account verification and whether the employees are declared by their employers.

UIF has paid more than R55 billion to millions of South African citizens since lockdown was implemented in March.

Marsha Bronkhorst, UIF Commissioner, has announced that applications for UIF Ters will close on 31 December 2020. However, she would also like to emphasize the fact that payments will not end on 31 December 2020, they are set to continue as long as these payments are necessary.
