The Compensation Fund (CF) has developed a new system to create a seamless process from employer registration to receiving a letter of good standing, a meeting was told in Polokwane today (on Monday).

The meeting was attended by Business Women Association of South Africa in Polokwane. The meeting formed part of the Commissioner’s breakfast session where he briefs them about developments in the Fund, CF-Filling system, and E-COID (Compensation for Occupational Injuries and Diseases) claims system as well as the proposed COID amendments.

Vuyo Mafata, CF Commissioner, said the Fund has facilitated the introduction of the new system to expedite the registration as well as payment of claims. Mafata said the organisation was holding series of national workshops in all provinces to inform our stakeholders about that.

Compensation Fund Deputy Director: IT, Precious Mdlokovana said:

The CF–Filing system aims to:
• Improve the employer Registration process by converting the manual process into an electronic process and allowing employers to register on the website
• Optimise the turnaround time for employer registrations
• Provide an additional means for employers to electronically pay their contributions to CF upon receipt of an RoE assessment
• Enable employer verification by allowing employers to update their details
• Obtain Letter of Good Standing online immediately after completion of payments
• Establishment of dedicated Call Centre competency to handle CF-Filing related queries.

She said in terms of this system:

• New employers will be able to register their businesses at the Fund’s portal (5 STEP PROCESS)
• Registered employers will be able to update their details on the portal.
• No need to submit Companies and Intellectual Property Commission (CIPC) documents – Online Validations effected
• No need to submit ID documents – Online validations
• Allows 3rd Party registrations on behalf of the employers as proxies
• Manual data capture errors will dramatically be reduced as information will no longer be captured but rather be updated systematically.
• With the automation of the employer Registration: 10 to 15 minute turnaround time.

Mafata also used the meeting to talk about the role of the Compensation Fund as well as the new proposed Coid Bill. The Bill aims to increase social security coverage through the removal of the express exclusion of domestic workers as employees.

Speaking about the return to work and rehabilitation program, Farzana Fakir, Chief Director: Orthotics; said the Fund was committed to creating an environment that was accessible to a person with disability.
