Can anyone tell me when can you start submitting the UIF claim forms from Dept. of Labour? I hear it can be a hussle and nightmare one lady I know she was saying she didn't get the money until she returned to work :pinch:

I also need to know how are they calculating the money that they're paying you. I'll really appreciate someone with clue on this as I don't get paid my full salary during M/L I only get 10% of my salary. :(

Hi Mommy4,

UIF wont accept your papers until you are actually on maternity leave (for some reason their system can't handle future dated applications :S )

However, it might be a good idea to get everything ready as soon as possible, cause it can be a real hassle driving up and down.
Specifically, make sure your company knows to submit the UI19 form online, they wont accept the actual papers from you anymore.

As for the calculation, it depends on your salary, they will pay between 38% and 58% of your salary, (the higher your salary, the lower the percentage).

Also, you can never receive more than 100% of your salary, so if your company pays 80%, they will only pay 20% etc.

Found these sites on a google search - they set it out nicely - the ceiling amount might have increased though, not sure how up to date the site is ;)

With my first, I had NO issues at all, literally walked in and walked out, and first money paid withing 4 weeks.
With my second, one of my forms was incorrect, and it took me about 6 trips and two months to get registered. but once all the papers were correct and submitted, I got my first payment within 6 weeks.

Hi,

Just wanted to add that the maximum payment is currently R5500 per month, so if 38% of your salary is more than R5500 you will receive only the R5500.

I'm so glad I found this! I am going on maternity leave in 2 days & I have no idea what to do since our HR Dept isn't so helpful.

All I got from HR was the UI-2.7 form. Do I get the rest from The DOL or can I download them online?

How many forms do you need to take to DOL all together?

I heard you need to get your bank and your Doctor to sign some forms as well.

Help please I am soooo lost

Hi BeautifullyAngie,

First you can only go after baby is born.

You can get the other forms from the website. If I remember correctly it is an UI 2.3 and UI 2.8.

Then you will also have to go back every month with another form but they will give you that form, just ask for it.

Hope this helps.

Just want to correct Joanne, you CAN go before baby is born - just not before you are on maternity leave.

Here is the official site with the list of forms.
www.labour.gov.za/DOL/legislation/acts/h...f-maternity-benefits

the UI 2.8 form needs to be filled in by your bank
the UI 2.3 form needs to be filled in by your doctor/midwive

the UI 1.4 you will ONLY need after you have been registered, and need to get another payment, so don't stress about that one now. They will give it to you to bring back.

Just note - the UI 2.3 needs to be filled in differently depending on whether you are still pregnant, or have given birth. So if you give birth before you manage to get your UIF registered, just take another copy with to the hospital so that they can re-do it (happened to me!!! ;))
