UIF

Has your application for SASSA R350 been declined? Is your SASSA R350 the reason for the decline stating “UIF registered”? If this is so, then your qualification for SASSA R350 will be at a halt. 

Most applicants do not know the relationship between the unemployment insurance fund and the SASSA R350. These two policies serve similar purposes, but there are differences in terms of the qualifications and criteria.

The unemployment insurance fund is purposely available for applicants who used to work and, for a few reasons, are currently unemployed. 

An individual who contributed to UIF while working and, in the case of illness, they are not deemed fit to work for months qualifies for UIF. This is an insurance fund that is kept for all qualified UIF contributors. 

On the other hand, the SASSA R350 is a grant that is given to individuals who are unemployed and receive no form of income. Certain people qualify for the SASSA R350, including people above 60 who have gone on pension. Other qualifications confirm that one can receive SASSA R350 grant

Overall, these two government institutions are similar in supporting applicants who are distressed and need financial support for a period of time. 

How to Cancel UIF for R350

You may have applied for the SASSA R350 grant, and for UIF-registered reasons, your application has been declined. This can be an unbearable moment, especially when you are in dire need of money. 

It is important to know that these grant givers or social distress relief organizations are interconnected. Therefore, any entry that coincides with your details can disqualify you. 

Applicants who have been declined for the R350 grant may cancel their UIF in order to qualify.

One thing that links both the UIF and R350 is that they both provide financial support for the unemployed for a particular period of time. 

Most applicants are not aware that once you qualify for UIF, you can not receive R350 grant. The department of labour, in the past, has addressed the grievances of many applicants who find themselves in this situation. 

Finally, one can not cancel UIF for no reason. If you find yourself unemployed for some time, it does not mean you will not be employed again, and therefore, UIF does not provide a platform for individuals to cancel their applications. 

Applicants who wish to receive R350 grant but do not qualify because of UIF registration can not cancel their UIF. The option to cancel UIF is not available. However, there are ways to resolve this issue in order to receive the SASSA R350 grant.

As it has been said, currently, there is no way for one to cancel UIF for SASSA R350, but if you wish to receive R350 grant, you need to appeal or send a reconsideration notice to SASSA. Sometimes the duration of the unemployment plays a huge role in your R350 qualification. And it becomes essential to check every piece of information you provide for the SASSA R350 grant application. 

Sending an appeal or applying for reconsideration can allow SASSA to revoke its decision on your R350 declination. Once SASSA finds out the initial decision is wrong, your approval for your R350 grant will be done.

How do I Cancel my UIF

The unemployment insurance fund is a kind of insurance policy meant to support individuals who may lose their job for a good reason. There are certain reasons one can qualify for UIF, and if you find yourself within this spot, you can make claims for UIF.

Once you have been employed and registered for UIF, you can not cancel UIF. This is a long-term policy, and upon another employment, you, your employer, must ensure your contribution goes into your coffers.

Many applicants seek to cancel their UIF after they have lost their job or received all their claims.

Remember, labour law requires employers to register their employees and contribute their monthly deductions from their salary to UIF

If you leave your employer, you can not cancel UIF, but your employer can take your name from the list of contributors. 

What to do when Sassa says UIF registered.

There is always confusion when applicants who applied for SASSA find out their reason for a decline is UIF registered. This part will teach you about the next action when SASSA says UIF registered. 

So supposing you applied for SASSA and your application status indicates “UIF registered”, you can appeal or put in reconsideration to SASSA. This action informs SASSA about the need to approve your SASSA grant. 

Once you find out your SASSA application says “UIF registered”, do not apply again; login into the portal and appeal to SASSA. This will send a message for your application to be reviewed again.

Why my Sassa status says UIF registered?

Applicants looking to receive support from SASSA may find out their declined reason is “UIF registered”. The SASSA and UIF work hand-in-hand because of the kind of financial support they both provide. These two entities are government bodies that seek to provide income for individuals who qualify. 

If your SASSA status says UIF registered, this means you may be receiving income from UIF., and it has been communicated by SASSA that; individuals who are receiving any form of income elsewhere can not qualify for SASSA. 

What happens if SRD grant is declined because of UIF

There are many reasons why SRD grant applicants will be declined, but if your reason is stated because of UIF, then this sends a signal to SASSA that you are already receiving financial support from UIF. The South African Social Security Agency has called upon all organisations working together to always review the details of applications when needed since this can affect their income in the future.

SASSA has been advising SRD grants to lodge an appeal if their application is declined because of UIF. The appeal can be done on the online portal at any time once you find out the decline came up due to UIF registration.
