The Department of Employment and Labour and its entity, the Unemployment Insurance Fund (UIF), will continue with the registration campaign of unclaimed benefits for ex-mineworkers in the Northern Cape Province targeting Kakamas (Kai Garib Local Municipality), Rosedale and Paballelo both in Upington (Dawid Kruiper Local Municipality) in the ZF Mgcawu District.

This campaign is aimed at ex-mineworkers who left employment in the mines prior to 01 April 2002. This category of workers is urged to come and make applications for unclaimed benefits from the UIF.

The Department of Employment Labour as the agent charged with responsibility of tracing and paying these ex-mineworkers urges all potential applicants to bring along any of the following documents for verification:

•    Identity document
•    Access card (from previous mine employer)
•    IRP 5 (from the previous mine employer)
•    Old Blue card
•    Previous salary advice
•    Or any proof of mine employment (including “Makhulu’s kop” card, Dompas or TEBA record)

The registration will be held as follows:

Kakamas

Venue: Kakamas Library
Time: 09:00 – 16:00

Rosedale (Upington)
