Disability Benefits

Disability
All active Members of the Fund are covered by this benefit provided contributions are paid on time and are up to date.

If you are disabled due to an accident or illness and you are unable to perform your own or any other occupation as per the rules, the disability benefit is paid.

 

Part of the money your employer contributes every month pays for this benefit.

The disability benefit is equal to 3 x your annual fund salary/wages plus your retirement fund savings (fund credit).
If you exit the Fund you will no longer be covered by or be able to claim for the disability benefit.

You have a period of 6 months from last day of service to notify the Fund of your disability and submit all relevant and required supporting documents for consideration and approval of your claim.
