  1. Nanette Gunter says:

    The calculator only calculates for 48 months of benefit that is claimable. I have been contributing to UIF for the past 15 years without claiming and would like to know if that would be taken into concideration when the payments are calculated.

  2. Andries says:

    Hello Nanette,
    unfortunately not. You will only be able to claim benefits for the last 4 years.
    All the best,

    What would my monthly unemployment benefit be(if retrenched) if I worked for 42 years at one firm with a final income of about R35,000 per month. How many monthly ” payouts” will I receive


  7. @kwazi says:

    I am planning to go on ano unpaid leave end of July. The thing is i get paid by basic and commission and last week i was informed that my basic is falling away and as of end of May i will be earning on commission only. I have been with the current company for 9 months now and for a year with the previous company. Will i still qualify to claim uif?

    Hi if one earns eg a salary of 65000 gross how much does 1 contribut p/month. Pls help with calculation.

    • Andries says:

      You contribute 1% of your salary to UIF. To estimate how much you will receive after being retrenched use the calculator.

  9. tshepo says:

    do i forfeit the uif fund if i don’t claim it? and is it possible to claim after finding a different job?

  10. Brendan says:

    I just need some advice. I don’t quite understand the 4 years story. I was retrenched in 2010 and last year claimed my UIF. I started working again but was retrenched again last month. Can I claim my UIF?

    • Andries says:

      Not completely sure, but think you will only be able to claim for the period since you started working again.

  11. Hanru says:

    Thank you – the calculator is very useful.

    I just wanted to confirm: I resigned from permanent employment wef January 2010, but have recently worked on a fixed term contract that has now ended. Am I correct in assuming that I can take all months that I have been contributing UIF over the last 4 years into account, regardless of the employer? Ie I can claim for ca 20 months at my previous employer plus the time spent on the fixed term contract?

  12. Kaity says:

  13. Matshepo says:

    I have been working from July 2007 and then was made permanent November 2007 and ever since worked as a permanent employee. I will be going on unpaid maternity leave from 19 July. How would I calculte my estimated pay during the my unpaid leave as my salary increased annually during my working years.

  14. charlie says:

    I typed in the amount of months I worked and my gross earnings, the amount given by the calculator is not what i got on my first payment. It is not a double payment either. The calculator is not correct, what i got and what the calculator says differs with more than a R1000.

  15. Ronnel says:

  16. Clare says:

    Does the uif payment come as a lumpsum or per month.

    Thank you for the useful calculator!

  19. Thea says:

    My friend last claimed in 2015. She was working now for 2 years and her contract ended. When she went to claim UIF they told her that she can’t claim becuase she claimed in 2015. Why would she be rejected?
