UIF Payments Will Be Stopped For Days


Due to a shutdown period, the Unemployment Insurance Fund will soon pause the processing of payments until January 2022. 



The Unemployment Insurance Fund (UIF) has announced that they will not be processing payments from Friday, 24 December 2021 until Sunday, 2 January 2022 due to a shutdown period. 

This means that normal benefits, Covid-19 Temporary Employer-Employee Relief Scheme (TERS) and UIF Workers Affected By Unrest (WABU) funds will not be paid for this period. 

Payments of these funds will resume on 3 January 2022. 

The UIF provides financial assistance to people who were previously part of the country's workforce. They provide short-term financial relief to unemployed individuals including those people who are unable to work. 

Follow the steps below to check your UIF payment status: 

  1. Visit the UIF website: https://ufiling.labour.gov.za/uif/login
  2. Click on "Check my status"
  3. Fill in all the required information 
  4. Complete the Captcha test 

In order to receive UIF payments you must have been registered with the UIF and must have contributed to the fund while you were working. 

The Covid-19 TERS was introduced when South Africa went into a lockdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic and businesses were forced to close down leaving many without any income. 

People who have been forced to stop working or have had their work time reduced due to the pandemic, receive financial relief through TERS benefits. 

TERS benefits are paid to workers for the time that they were unable to work due to lockdown or other disruptions and employers must apply for the benefits on behalf of their employees.
