The Unemployment Insurance Fund (UIF) has cautioned the public not to fall victim to scammers, as yet another social media scam circulates.


In South Africa, every employee is required to contribute to the Unemployment Insurance Fund (UIF) and pay employee' tax, in the form of Pay As You Earn (PAYE). 


South Africa’s current unemployment rate is just above 34%. Losing your job can be an extremely stressful experience for people. It could leave you in a position where you have no income but your expenses remain the same.


The July unrest in parts Kwa-Zulu Natal and Gauteng has had a devastating impact on the Country. More than 300 lives were lost during the unrest while many people were left without work.


Losing a loved one can be extremely difficult for families. This is often made harder when the loved one who passed was the family breadwinner.


Being forced to work reduced hours or put on ‘short time’ can be an extremely stressful time. You will receive less income but your expenses remain the same. The Unemployment Insurance Fund (UIF) will provide compensation to employees whose working hours have been reduced or forced to stay at home due to work stoppage.
