    I am an employee at Statistics South Africa. I am 60 years old. I started working at The Office of the President in the former Venda Government in 1983 as a census clerk on 01 December 1983 as a temporary employee. I was permanently employed as administration clerk by the same office in 01 August 1985 and I was attached to Statistics Division. In 1995 I was transferred to Central Statistics Services now known as Statistics South Africa. I want to go on pension. We got our pension payouts in Venda in 1992.

    According to GEPF, I am told that my pension payouts will start paying from 01 June 1995(which was the day I assume duties at Statistics South Africa as I was transferred from Venda)

    The officer from your office who visits Statistics South Africa each Tuesday for pension matters insists that there must proof that I continued working from Venda to Statistics South Africa. A letter of permanent employment in Venda and a letter of transfer was given to him but he say it is not enough. He wanted duty records from 1992 to 1995. The file that contains this information is missing from our HR.

    This case is dragging on since June 2017. I should have already gone by now.

    What should I do in this case because nothing seems to be moving and I am stressful.

    Please help me

The application for Pension payout was done in 2016 through the Nelspruit office of Master of the High Court (REF GF831/2013). Several follow ups were made without any success. In February this year I decided to approach their Head Office in Pretoria. There I was told to go to GEPF to get an Original letter, which I did. I submitted another Original letter from GEPF on 5 June 2018.Nothing has happened since, I am financially strained,at one point I had to borrow money to keep my son, who is by the way at University,in class. I am also supporting 2 of his siblings. PLEASE HELP
