The Unemployment Insurance Fund (UIF) provides temporary financial support to workers who have become unemployed or to workers that are unable to work due to several circumstances. 

Temporary financial support is provided to employees who took maternity leave, adoption leave, parental leave or have become ill. The UIF also provides this assistance to dependents of deceased UIF contributors

Employees who work for more than 24 hours per month are required to make contributions to the UIF. The value of their monthly contribution to the UIF is equivalent to 2% of their monthly remuneration. The employee will contribute 1% and the remaining 1% will be contributed by the employer. 

The employer is responsible for deducting the employee’s UIF contribution for their salary and paying it to the UIF along with their contribution. 

Employers are required to submit a monthly UIF declaration to the Department of Employment and Labour. These declarations contain information relating to the UIF contributions of each employee.
