OverviewThe vision of the Unemployment Insurance Fund (UIF) is to strive to contribute to the alleviation of poverty in South Africa by providing effective short-term unemployment insurance to all workers who qualify for unemployment insurance and other related benefits.
The UIF's strategic outcome-orientated goals are to: improve payment of benefits to UIF beneficiaries; improve collection of revenue from employers; participate in government initiatives to create and sustain decent employment; and provide effective administration of the Fund’s operations.
To pursue these goals effectively, five strategic objectives were identified: fund poverty alleviation schemes; improve governance; strengthen the institutional capacity of the Fund; encourage compliance through enhanced service delivery; and improve stakeholder relations.
