If you are a South African citizen using the UIF benefits, it may happen every so often that you are left with unclaimed UIF money. It could happen due to a number of reasons that we won’t be discussing in this article.
What I want to focus on today is how to check if you have unclaimed UIF money and what to do to claim that amount.
I can assure you that by the end of this article, you will be equipped with all the essential knowledge that you must have in your arsenal if you are a UIF beneficiary. This is all very important stuff so I recommend that you give a few minutes to read what I have to say. You are guaranteed to get immense value out of it.
So, without further ado, let’s get started.
1. Visit The Department Of Employment
One of the things you may do to check if you have unclaimed money from the UIF bursary is to personally visit the Department of Employment. Provide all your details to the person I charge and within seconds he will tell you the immediate balance of your account.
Although it may be a little inconvenient for you to physically visit the department, especially when there are other more convenient and quick ways to check out your outstanding balance.
2. Visit Their Labour Website
You may also visit their labor website online through your laptop or computer. For that, simply click on the link www.labour.gov.za and you will be immediately redirected to their official website. Open up UIF portal and login.
3. Call Their Number
You may also call on their toll-free number 0800 030 007. You will immediately be connected to a virtual assistant who will direct your call to the operator after you follow the prompts.
So, this was all from my side. I hope you all could benefit from this information. I tried my best to explain everything in as simple words as possible. Finally, I would like to remind you to check if you have an available unclaimed balance on your UIF account before you go to the trouble of submitting your documents.
