Beware of bogus UIF social media post

Social Media bogus post purporting to belong to Unemployment Insurance Fund (UIF) is targeting unsuspecting individuals who worked between 1994 and 2018 to trick them into trusting they will each get R8, 472, 00 benefits,  UIF Commissioner Teboho Maruping warned on Tuesday.

Maruping said the UIF does not have such a programme as shown on the internet, adding that members of the public, employers, and clients must ignore the fake social media post

“The Unemployment Insurance Fund does not have the programme as shown on the social media post. The public and stakeholders must not respond to the social media post or pay anything if requested,” said Maruping.

He said the UIF apologises for any inconvenience that may have arisen from the unfortunate post.

The UIF is a public entity of the Department of Labour and is one of the key social security agencies in South Africa.
