R456 Million in unclaimed benefits at GEPF

There are around 17 000 people out there who are entitled to a piece of the unclaimed benefits fund from the GEPF (Government Employees Pension Fund) so if you have worked for the Government or had a family member (deceased or living) that once worked for the Government in some form, then you may be entitled to a piece of this R456 Million pie.

These unclaimed benefits are owed to people from both National and Provincial Government levels. The Government Pensions Administration Agency (GPAA) is the body held responsible for administrating the Government employees pension fund and is responsible for finding and paying out the 17 000 individuals.

Go to the GEPF page on >> to download the form and get their contact details.
