Unclaimed pension fund benefit search

Unclaimed pension fund benefits amount to a whole lot of money which is sitting in the coffers of the Insurance companies awaiting distribution and you could be one of the lucky ones who is able to collect.

If you or anyone in your family has been with a few different companies over the years and contributions to a pension or retirement fund were made, it is well worth using the FSB’s unclaimed benefit search to see if any benefits are owing.

The worrying thing about the fact that there are R millions of unclaimed benefits is that it appears very little effort is going into attempting to find these beneficiaries or the beneficiaries of their estates.

In most cases, the owner of the benefit has died and the company does not know how or where to contact the family members. The families of these policy owners are legally entitled to this money.

The search of the unclaimed pension benefits database is a simple search which can either be dione by fund name or by beneficiary name. I suggest that use the simplest form of the unclaimed benefit search by simply entering the surname and scrolling through the list as the Initial convention used in the database is not uniform, some are displayed as G.C or G.C. or GC, you get the idea.

Search the FSB’s Unclaimed pension benefits database.

If you do find unclaimed pension benefits from any fund, the search results will display the fund name, the contact details(in most cases) and the person to contact.

If the pension benefits show a company that you are not aware of familiar with, give them a call anyway, you never know, there may be a significant amount of money that you or the family are legally entitled to in the form of unclaimed pension benefits.

    My name is Chauke Hlayiseka Caswell. I have an issue about my grandfather’s benefits with South African railway. He worked there for many years up until he died. I strongly believe that the money is unclaimed and I want to know how do I go about claiming it. I have a mother of which my grandfather is the father to her and she always talks about it. He used to work at Railway in Pretoria (SA). Please advise on how to claim it. I have his ID and death certificate. Have a nice day

    My late father worked for Spoornet for all of life, I think more than 25 years and past away on 27 October 1996. My mom then received a pension which was very little and she still had to do some dressmaking jobs to provide for us. After my mom past on the pension stopped and she even had more than R200,000 left in the medical saving account. We never followed up on this as my sister and I were told that only the two of us names were on the beneficiary list to get money should my mom past on. We never followed up on this, but my sister always told me that she and my mom went to the paul sauer building in Cape Town where my mom signed papers to make us the beneficiaries should she pass on. After years of no joy my sister passed on in 2016 and I still feel that I need to close this chapter and must find out if there is any unclaimed funds that should have been paid out to us. My sister left 4 children behind and I feel that should there be any money it could really help in getting them a proper education and improve their lives.

    The lady at the Paul Sauer Building told me last week that because of the old apartheid pension there is nothing because it falls away once the wife/mother dies.
