26th August – Disappointment as UIF TERS is shut down

Disappointment as UIF TERS is shut down

FSA has learnt through B4SA representatives at Nedlac that all payments of Unemployment Insurance Fund (UIF) Temporary Employer/Employee Relief Scheme (TERS) benefits have been halted.

This is due to a pending investigation by the Auditor-General. It is understood that the Auditor-General is investigating system integrity problems at the UIF related to the TERS system. None of the already significantly delayed payments on claims for the July/August period, for which claims opened only on 17 August, have been made. The catching up on backlog payments going back as far as April has also been halted.
