The Unemployment Insurance Fund (UIF) has started processing Covid-19 TERS applications.  This comes after the President announced an extension for the relief scheme. 

Applications for the Temporary Employee/Employer Relief Scheme (TERS) will reopen in March. This comes after the President announced that the relief scheme would be extended for sectors affected by the Covid-19 lockdown. 

After coming to an end last year, UIF TERS has been extended once again. This was announced by President Cyril Ramaphosa on Thursday evening. 

The South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) is a national agency of the government that was established in 2005. Their main aim is to provide social grants to residing citizens on behalf of the department of social development. Due to the Covid-19 global pandemic, this has taken a toll on many of us and has brought a great deal of uncertainty. This has impacted many households physically, mentally and financially and left many people unemployed and unable to provide for their families.

The Unemployment Insurance Fund has decided to step in once again and to provide relief for workers affected by the lockdown. This comes as many businesses have been looking to the government for some form of relief, following the new level 3 regulations. 

The Unemployment Insurance Fund (UIF) is on a mission to track payments made to employers. This comes after the UIF discovered that some employers were not being honest about making payments to employees.

Irregular payments of relief funds are nothing new for the UIF. It has now been discovered that some government employees have wrongfully been benefitting from the relief scheme intended to help those affected by the lockdown. 

The Unemployment Insurance Fund (UIF) has opened a case of fraud against a non-profit organisation in the Western Cape.
