12-FEBRUARY-2019

The Department of Labour’s Unemployment Insurance Fund will be embarking on a week-long campaign aimed at taking applications from ex-mineworkers eligible to claim for their unemployment benefits. These are the benefits which are yet to be claimed by ex-mineworkers from the Fund.  The campaign is meant for people who worked in the mines prior the 1st of April 2001.

Held within communities themselves, this campaign will afford the ex-mineworkers the most convenient and easy way to access the services of the Department.

The campaign which started yesterday (11 February 2019) at Namahadi Traditional Council Offices, Monontsha Inter-mediate School, and Bolata Traditional Council Offices will roll out through the week at the following venues:

  • Date      : 12 February 2019
  • Time     : 08:00am to 17:00pm
  • Venue   : Thaba Bosiu Traditional Council Offices, Thaba Tshweu Traditional Council Offices, Mmakoane SASSA Hall
  • Date      : 13 February 2019
  • Time     : 08:00am to 17:00pm
  • Venue   : Matsieng Traditional Council Offices, Mabolela Traditional Council Offices
  • Date      : 14 February 2019
  • Time     : 08:00am to 17:00pm
  • Venue   : Phomolong Traditional Council Offices , Thibella Traditional Council Offices , Dinkweng Traditional Council Offices
  • Date      : 15 February 2019
  • Time     : 08:00am to 17:00pm
  • Venue   : Makgolokoeng Traditional Council Offices

Ex-mineworkers in Phuthaditjhaba are therefore called upon to go and register at their respective Traditional Council Offices in Phuthaditjhaba from 28/01/2019.  This campaign is particularly meant for ex-miners who worked in the mines prior the 1st of April 2001 and have proof that they indeed worked in the mines during the said period.

This campaign is particularly meant for ex-miners who worked in the mines prior the 1st of April 2001 and have proof that they indeed worked in the mines during the said period.

It is required of an individual claimant to bring along all or any of the following documents for officials to verify the authenticity of the claim and ascertain whether or not you indeed worked in the mines during the said period;

  • Stamped Reference book (old identity document)
  • Employer cards / Mine ID Card (Makhuluskop)
  • Pay slips
  • Old blue cards
  • Record of service
  • IRP5

Ex-mineworkers with no such documentation are advised to go to Teba and ask for their employment service records printout which can also serve as proof that they indeed worked in the mines, for which they will be charged not more than R100.
