Department of LabourNon Payment of UIF

P Review updated:

I had a problem in 2014 when I claimed the UIF and they paid me only once because I was employed already when they paid. This year again I went to claim and only to find out that because of the issues in 2014 Data captures ended up capturing the incorrect employer information that has to be removed now. When I ask at the Dept. of Labour how can this be resolved, they told me to ask said employer to remove my details but I explained several time I have never worked for that employer that is captured on my profile, hence I can't a proof of employment if I have not worked there. I am very frustrated with the incompetence there... I have been unemployed for 4 months now and need to pay my bills with my UIF. To top it all off, no one answers the phone I have wasted a lot of money calling different offices at the Labour Department but with no success. I have sent several emails but no response, I went to the Labour centre and they told me I must ask an employer I don't even know to fix the information then I can come back and claim. I have tried UFiling and the documents don't even load, again another money I DO NOT have GONE!!! I am sick and tired of this nonsense...

Please help me I have no money to pay rent this month and I reached out to siblings but end June I'm afraid I will be evicted cos I don't have any income. I was a bread winner at home and going home is NOT an option!!! Why must I suffer so much to get monies owed to me, I'm not borrowing from you, I simply want my money!!!

Kind regards,

Pinky Dlamini

    i applied for my UIF in 2016, i have been to Maponya mall in the cold waiting in that long line to submit my documents.
    up until today i have not received a cent from UIF. All the staff walks up an down and pretend that we are there to receive free goods, when all we want it our money, you guys really need to look into this as the staff also has this arrogant behavior, we have paid the government for this money! they are not giving it to us! This is so so so disappointing as we pay for this benefit and when we need the money its like we begging when we put in a claim.. My son is two already and every time i call or go there they tell me that it has not been captured, who will help me capture my documents as this is so long over due i want my money i have worked for belongs to me. can anyone please help me as
