How To Claim UIF Dependants Benefits

by creator last modified 2008-12-18 13:40
Dependants must apply for benefits at their nearest labour centre in person. They must take the necessary documents with them.

Claiming Dependants Benefits

If dependants want to claim dependants benefits they must use the following steps:

Step 1: Get the documents ready

Before dependants can claim, they must get the following documents ready:
  • dependant’s 13-digit bar-coded ID or passport;
  • deceased’s 13-digit bar-coded ID or passport;
  • form UI-19;
  • marriage certificate (for spouses)
  • lobola letter (for traditional marriages)
  • affidavit (for life partners)
  • birth certificates (for children)
  • proof of schooling (for children between 21 and 25); and
  • death certificate of the deceased.

Step 2: Go to the nearest labour centre

Dependants must go to the nearest labour centre themselves and hand in the documents. Staff at the labour centre will assist them with all the processes and give them more information.

Step 3: Follow all the instructions of the staff at the labour centre

Staff at the labour centre may ask dependants to visit the labour centre at certain times. Workers should do what they ask, or they may not be able to claim.
