COVID- 19 TERS PAYMENTS EXTENDED UNTIL SEPTEMBER 15

SEKHUKHUNE

The lockdown relief which has placed cash in the hands of workers during the hard times occasioned by the Coronavirus pandemic will continue to make a difference in the lives of beneficiaries until September 15, 2020.

This follows negotiations at the National Economic and Labour Council (NEDLAC), and the signing of the direction to that effect by Minister Thulas Nxesi. 

“With the lockdown for some industries extended to September 15, it only makes sense for us to continue to shield workers from the worst effects of the pandemic by extending the relief payments which have placed much needed cash into the hands of ordinary workers in this country,” said Minister Nxesi.

The Covid-19 TERS benefit payments are part of government-wide response to ease the burden of the pandemic and to ensure that, to the extent possible, workers are not prejudiced by the lockdown. The applications have been sent in by employers and then distributed either directly to the accounts of workers or through their employers.

Consequent to the extension, the UIF will continue to receive applications for the March 2020 to end July 2020 period until 15 September 2020 and no further applications shall be accepted beyond that date.

The receipt of Covid-19 TERS benefit applications for August 2020 to 15 September 2020 shall close on 30 October 2020, and no further applications shall be accepted beyond that date.

To date, the UIF has disbursed over R41-billion in 9 501 365 payments through applications by 825 814 employers.
