UIF continued…. Important Information
Firstly, important information when claiming UIF – personal details such as surnames are a real problem, especially for married women. This is because the surnames at the Dept of Labour don’t always match the surnames which Home Affairs has for you, despite the fact that you may have your new ID in your new surname. In addition, if your surname at the Dept of Labour doesn’t match the surname that your bank account is in, then payments will not go through. When problems do occur, the onus is on the claimant to prove their information is correct but either going to Home Affairs, or the bank etc, to obtain substantiating evidence that their information is correct.
UIF MYTHS AND CHALLENGES PART 1
Anyone who has been in the unfortunate position of claiming UIF due to unemployment, maternity, adoption or illness, will know that the process of claiming UIF is not what we would call “for the feint-hearted”. For those who have never had to claim, you can equate it to renewing a drivers licence or dealing with any other government institution, where one arrives ever hopeful and blissfully unaware of where to go and what to do. There is always a welcome relief when finding someone willing to smile and show you the way to the first queue you need to stand in … however often this is not the case. And almost guaranteed that if the “not know what to do” part doesn’t raise those cortisol levels, the frustration of time-wasting queues, will!
