If there's a possibility that something can happen, it is best to be prepared for it. Nothing can be more true of this than when it comes to employment.
Today you may find yourself in a job but who truly knows what tomorrow holds. The Unemployment Insurance Fund (UIF) provides workers with short term financial relief should they find themselves unemployed or unable to work.
If you work for more than 24 hours per month, you are required by law to make contributions to the UIF. The amount that is contributed equals 1 percent of your gross monthly income. This is deducted from your salary while a further 1 percent is contributed by your employer.
