Unemployment Insurance Fund establishes a toll free number to assist beneficiaries

by lloyd last modified 2013-08-22 16:55


The Unemployment Insurance Fund (UIF) has put in place a new toll free number to assist and save its beneficiaries costs when calling the UIF call centre. The toll free number (0800 843 843 or 0800 UIF UIF), will be a welcome relief to more than 20 000 of UIF beneficiaries who call the UIF on a monthly basis.

The previous call centre number 012 337 1680 meant that UIF beneficiaries who are already facing financial difficulties bore the costs of making a call to UIF to enquire about its services.

“It gives me great pleasure to inform UIF beneficiaries about the existence of the new toll free number. It is a great pleasure to know that the new number will lessen the financial burden to our stakeholders when doing business with the Fund,” UIF Commissioner Mr Boas Seruwe said.


The previous number which is widely used by UIF beneficiaries will continue to be operational, but UIF clients are encouraged to save costs and use the new number. Beneficiaries can use the new number to enquire about any services that the UIF provides.
