The Unemployment Insurance Fund (UIF) has, with immediate effect, withdrawn the circular that was shared in Gauteng declining to accept manual UI-19 forms from clients.
The UIF apologises to clients, employers, and stakeholders for any inconvenience caused by the circular, and assures clients that it will continue accepting the submission of manual UI-19 forms at all labour centres.
Members are however encouraged to visit https://ufiling.labour.gov.za/uif/, to submit their Unemployment, Illness, Maternity, and Adoption benefit claims online. Employers can also use uFiling to declare their workers, including foreign employees, and pay monthly contributions.
If and when the Fund considers going fully paperless, the decision will be communicated by the UIF Commissioner, Teboho Maruping, after thorough consultations with clients, employers, and critical stakeholders.
