Why should I join an unemployment fund?

Unemployment Fund

Unemployment funds are a nice security blanket in case you are laid off, or terminated, from your job. The unemployment fund will provide you with a earnings related daily allowance based on your previous employment salary, among other factors. In most cases to qualify for the unemployment fund, you must have been a member of the unemployment fund organization for at least 26 weeks before becoming unemployed. You will also need to be registered as an unemployed job seeker at the TE Office. To learn more, click here.
