We emigrated in 2006 to Australia thinking we had been paid all benefits due when I resigned from my job. Without the unclaimed benefits service I would have been none the wiser about the R38,000 owing to me.
Peter D, Anglo Platinum Retirement Fund
I have always thought I was financially astute and could not believe that someone would owe me money without me knowing. Well surprise, surprise, someone did. Thank you for a great service
Chet N, Durban Hotels Retirement Fund.
I resigned and left the company in 1998 and had no idea that 14 years later additional money would be owing to me through a surplus apportionment scheme. What an unexpected windfall!
James D, Oceana Group Pension Fund.
My elderly father lives in a small village in the Eastern Cape without any Telkom line at home or cellphone. He had no idea that he was still owed money from a previous employer’s provident fund. Thank you so much that I was able to give him the great news!!!
Enid Anna G, Bayer Work Provident Fund
I never thought that when I got married in 2004 and changing my surname to my husband’s it could cause problems in people trying to trace me. But it did. Thank you for an incredible service which has meant we can now put down a deposit on a new car.
Joanne M, Post Office Pension Fund
I am currently unemployed and I was worried about how to pay my son’s school fees this month. Thanks to the unclaimed benefits service this is no longer a worry and I have money left over.
Joe N. – Orion Umbrella Provident Fund
My father worked as a contract cleaner supervisor for many years prior to him passing away in 2007 after resigning almost 3 years before that. We had no idea that he was owed monies from the retirement fund he had been contributing to before he resigned. The unclaimed money my mother received has helped her tremendously.
