How To Submit A UIF Online Claim Application



The Unemployment Insurance Fund provides temporary financial support to workers who are unemployed or that are unable to work due to several circumstances. However, these funds are only available to individuals who contribute to the fund.



The UIF provides financial support to clients in the form of unemployment benefits, illness benefits, maternity benefits, or adoption benefits.

To simplify and fast-track the application process, the UIF launched its online uFiling platform and have encouraged all clients to submit their claims via the uFiling platform.

Through uFiling, employers can submit their monthly declarations and make payments to the UIF, while employees can submit claims for various UIF benefits, such as unemployment, illness, maternity, and adoption benefits.

uFiling is user-friendly and provides step-by-step guidance on how to submit declarations and claims.

Follow these steps to submit your UIF claim:

  1. Visit the uFiling website.
  2. Register or Logon to your account.
  3. Once your account is created, log in to uFiling and select "New Claim" from the dashboard.
  4. Choose the type of claim you want to submit, which could be unemployment benefits, illness benefits, maternity benefits, or adoption benefits.
  5. Fill in the required details in the online claim form, such as your personal information, employment history, and reason for the claim.
  6. Upload all the supporting documents required for your claim, such as your ID document, banking details, medical certificates, and proof of unemployment.
  7. Submit your claim and wait for the confirmation message on uFiling.
  8. Check the status of your claim regularly by logging in to uFiling and selecting "Claim History" from the dashboard.

The uFiling platform also provides access to important UIF forms and documents, as well as a messaging service to communicate with the UIF.

It is important to note that you must apply for the UIF benefits as soon as you become unemployed or within six months of the termination of your employment.

The fund has also urged all clients to provide accurate and complete information to avoid any delays or rejection of claims.
