TERS HAS BEEN EXTENDED, BUT NOT FOR EVERYONE
TERS applications can be made for the period between 16 October 2020 to 15 March 2021, but only for some sectors.
The President stated that:
3. Liquor industry and
4. Related sectors
will benefit from the extended TERS benefit, but that Nedlac (National Economic Development and Labour Council) will have to finalise the complete list of sectors that are eligible to claim.
This extension is for sectors that have not been able to operate due to the lockdown.
Once the sectors are defined, UIF will open for TERS applications.
UIF will continue to process and pay valid and complete outstanding TERS claims that were already in the system.
