Employment and Labour on UIF withdrawing Gauteng circular on the discontinuance of accepting Manual UI-19 forms

UIF withdraws Gauteng circular on the discontinuance of accepting Manual UI-19 forms
The Unemployment Insurance Fund (UIF) has, with immediate effect, withdrawn the circular that was shared in Gauteng declining to accept manual UI-19 forms from clients.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 UI-19 is a form that confirms the employment status and history, as well as the salary and hours worked by an employee.

The UIF apologises to clients, employers, and stakeholders for any inconvenience caused by the circular. The Fund also assures clients that it will continue accepting the submission of manual UI-19 forms at all labour centres.

However, clients are also encouraged to visit https://ufiling.labour.gov.za/uif/ to submit their Unemployment, Illness, Maternity, and Adoption benefit claims.

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.

The Fund remains committed to rendering excellent services.
