Unemployment Insurance Fund (UIF), financial stability in times of unemployment!


The Unemployment Insurance Fund (UIF) is essential support for workers who are unemployed or have a temporary interruption in their professional activity. With a monthly pension of up to R17,712.00, the worker has enough conditions to keep his commitments up to date while looking for a new job. In addition to financial aid, this pension provides training and professional development opportunities.

Four benefits offered by the UIF that have greatly improved the lives of South African workers!

Count on financial help to protect your income and assets in times of unemployment;
Possibility to participate in free training programs to increase your chances of finding a job;
In addition to unemployment benefits, the UIF fund provides maternity, paternity and sickness benefits;
Receive from R3,500 to R17,712 for up to 12 months.

Currently, the contribution rate for the UIF is 2% of the worker’s gross salary. Of this percentage, half (1%) is paid by the employer and the other half (1%) is paid by the worker. This means that, to be entitled to the UIF benefit, the worker must have contributed at least 1% of his gross salary while employed. It is important to remember that the fund also offers other types of benefits, such as maternity leave, paternity leave, sick pay and Social Assistance for Accidents (SRD).
