Illness benefits at UIF

You can apply for illness benefits at your nearest labour centre if you are an employed contributor to the Unemployment Insurance Fund (UIF) and unable to work because of illness.

To qualify for the benefits, you must be receiving less than your normal wages while you are on sick leave.

Find out more about claiming UIF illness benefits or contact the UIF.
