Compensation Fund beneficiaries told to confirm details before deadline



Clients and beneficiaries of the Compensation Fund pension have until the 31st of October to authenticate their details to avoid having their benefits terminated. 

The Director of Compensation Benefits, Nokuthula Sihlangu, has since appealed those affected to do this as soon as possible.

The Fund said it has been in a process to cleanse its pensioners’ database since September 2019.

"We want to improve the integrity of our data, hence the cleansing," Sihlangu added.

The process will help injured and disabled employees who receive a pension from the Fund as well as the dependents of deceased pensioners.

The notice also applies to pensioners who reside in South Africa and living abroad. 

Sihlangu said all it would take to validate details was a copy of 13-digit identity document and/or a passport.

The Compensation Fund is an entity of the Department of Employment and Labour whose role is to provide for compensation for disablement caused by the occupational injuries or diseases sustained or contracted by employees in the course of their employment, or death resulting from such injuries or diseases.

The Fund can be contacted on 0860 10 350 or [email protected] if you want to validate your details.
