How much will the UIF pay an employee?

UIF benefits are paid to all qualifying employees.

  • The minimum payment is R3,500 per month.
  • The maximum payment is R6,638.40 per month.

The amount an employee will receive will depend on the amount of their weekly/ monthly salary when they were employed and how long they have been contributing to the UIF.

There is a sliding payment scale of between 38% and 60% of an employee’s salary up to the maximum UIF salary threshold of R14 872 per month.  

Lower paid employees receive a higher percentage on the sliding scale.
