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 Unemployment Insurance Fund (UIF) has launched a new online system which will make applying for a UIF compliance certificate easier.

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.

The UIF TERS has paid out more than R52 billion in benefits to employers and employees affected by the Covid-19 lockdown. Now, the scheme will be wrapping up its last round of payments after benefiting millions of 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.
