UIF scheme for workers not paid during unrest
UIF temporary relief scheme​
The Unemployment Insurance Fund (UIF) has established a temporary relief scheme to provide financial relief to vulnerable workers. It will assist workers not paid (partial or full) remuneration owing to closure of their workplace due to the unrest. The relief scheme will start accepting applications from 25 August, subject to finalisation of system checks.

Workers qualifying under this relief scheme will receive a monthly flat rate of R3 500 paid directly to the employee. The benefit will be paid from 9 July (backdated) to 15 December. However, the continued operation of this benefit will be reviewed every two weeks.

Application procedure:
To avoid in-person employee applications, an employer who has closed business because of the unrest must apply for temporary financial relief for and on behalf of their affected workers in accordance with stipulated regulations.

Applications must be submitted online: uifecc.labour.gov.za​

Employers will have to meet the following qualifying conditions: 
  • The employer will have to register or be registered with the UIF. 
  • The employer’s closure must be directly linked to the destruction, damage or looting of its workplace/business.
  • The employer must provide details of the destruction, closure, or damage to, or looting of, its workplace and submit documentary proof of a report to the South African Police Services, including a case number. If insured, proof of submission and acknowledgement of receipt of the insurance claim must be submitted.
  • The employer must confirm in writing or electronically that he/she accepts the terms of the scheme herein and any procedure document issued by the UIF.
  • Submit any other information that may be required to assess eligibility of the claim.
