Road Accident Fund takes services to U’hage

2017-11-09 06:01

The Road Accident Fund will be assisting qualifying road crash victims to register new claims and check their claims status. The public will also be assisted with general enquiries.

“At the heart of this community outreach is service delivery and making a difference to car crash victims, including everyone affected by the scourge of road crashes,” said Boniswa Matshoba from the Road Accident Fund.

Claimants will be assisted with the direct registering of new claims, consolidation of required compliance documents, settlement offers, and reporting of cases involving alleged unscrupulous attorneys and touts.

Community members are encouraged to bring their ID documents to the event for enquiries and information on their claim.

“Among other important information which needs to be provided for new claims are case numbers, accident reports, a hospital report, vehicle registrations and details of other parties involved in the car crash,” said Matshoba.

Those who are unable to attend the event are encouraged to visit the RAF at any of the following offices in the Nelson Mandela metropole: Livingstone Hospital (Port Elizabeth); Dora Nginza Hospital (Port Elizabeth); Uitenhage Provincial Hospital (Uitenhage).

Bring your ID, accident report and hospital records to Uitenhage Town Hall, on Thursday, 16 November, from 08:00 to 16:00.

  • For more information regarding the claims procedure and services of the RAF contact the Call Centre 0860 23 55 23 on weekdays 07:45 to 16:00, or follow Twitter: @RAF_SA; Facebook: Road Accident Fund; or Instagram: RAF_ROAD.
