How many months can an employee claim UIF?

UIF can be claimed by an employee for up to 12 months, provided that the employee has full credit days. An employee can claim one day’s income for every 4 days of work, which can build up to a maximum of 365 days (or 12 months) over 4 years of continued employment.  In other words, if an employee has contributed to the UIF for 4 years, they can claim 12 months benefits.

  If the employee has contributed for a shorter period than 4 years, they will only be entitled to claim one day for every 5 days of work.
