Commissioner Teboho Maruping says it takes 10 days for claims to be processed, emails should be sent to COVID19ters@labour.gov.za

The Unemployment Insurance Fund and the Department of Labour have made R10 billion for the temporary employee relief scheme.

The scheme is meant to provide funds to companies that are unable to pay full salaries to their employees due to the COVID-19 lockdown.

Speaking to Clement Manyathela, UIF Commissioner Teboho Maruping says the R30 billion they have is for all claims made at the UIF.

We are pleading with employers to apply on behalf of their employees and we will process the applications.

Teboho Maruping, UIF Commissioner

We have received 3,952 applications to date and the number may have increased since the last time I checked.

Teboho Maruping, UIF Commissioner

He adds that the process should take up to 10 for the application to be processed.

We want to caution employers and applicants that remember you have already been paid for the month of March so we are treating this as a normal salary that you will receive at the end of April.

Teboho Maruping, UIF Commissioner

Applications can be sent to COVID19ters@labour.gov.za and they will receive an automated response on what you need to do next.
