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.

Some interesting stats about the GPAA

In the 2013/14 financial year the GPAA received R52-billion in pension contributions and paid out 62,771 people who left their employment.

The GPAA receives an average of 2,239 resignations per month and there are an average of 749 deaths per month.

Receiving what is due to you as an ex employee of the Government or due to you and your family members by virtue of the fact that a family member now deceased that onve worked for the Government can have life changing effects on the entire family.

We live in sometimes very challenging times with the cost of living seemingly going through the roof, Education costs sky rocketing. Get what is due to you!
