- Fax the application to the nearest UIF processing Centre. (Illness/ Reduced Work Time/Death benefits)
The UIF has relaxed some of their processes to accommodate the current circumstances caused by COVID-19 pandemic:

- Bank statements/confirmations (from verifying banks only) will be accepted instead of the UI2.8 form.
