Hi my name is Nompumelelo,   I seek advice on my deceased mother's unclaimed UIF.

My mother died while I was 16 years of age, and i was left with my two brothers. My mother worked at a public hospital as a nurse for over 25 years. We were young that time, we didnt know about UIF then. I am 27 years of age now and i would to know if we can stil claim my mother's UIF even though she passed on more than 5 years ago. Can this claim be accpted because we didnt know about it and i was still at high school when she passed?

Thank you.
