Provident fund pay outs
The co. my son in law works 4 retrenched some people in May of this year. Their provident fund has still not been paid out. Some of them still dont have other work + last week when they enquired about their provident fund money they were told by the fund it will take another 3 mths because of having to wait for tax clearence from SARS. Surely it cant take that long. What can these people do? Some of them are desperate now.

RE: PROVIDENT FUND PAY OUTS

Unfortunately Provident Fund payouts do take many, many months. The only thing you can do is to contact the administrators of the Provident Fund who can hurry this up. Unfortunately Companies do not control their own Provident Funds.
