That's my issue as well, I've a domestic who I've paid in full but if she gets it Direct into her account, she will get both. Do they pay a single employer?
Select the ‘pay to employer’ option when filling in the employer details. I think they’ll pay to you. However make certain that you retain proof that you had paid her already.

On my 4th day waiting for payment. To those that got payments for their employees, how long did it take? I see some got payments within 2 or 3 days.

That looks right. The payment reference includes your UIF Ref#....the one that ends on a /*

They should send you a remittance for your payslip breakdowns, but I haven't' received anything yet either.
I see there is now a payment breakdown available on the website. Also have to download form to submit proof of payment to them

Apparently remittances will be mailed tomorrow by UIF.

But I will skip the payslip adjustments this month and just do it next month.

Also have to download form to submit proof of payment to them

Not sure what you mean with this?

I saw this as well. Does this mean the employee need to be paid by the employer BEFORE they make a payment to the employer?

Rather get the breakdown yourself imo

Hers the form you need to fill in from the payment breakdown link on the website and return with proof of payment. I believe you have 2 days to make the payment from the date you receive it.

For one of our employees the incorrect details were entered.
Instead of editing the employee details the person capturing it deleted the employee from the list.
Now when we try and add the employee again, we get the following message:

"THIS ID NUMBER IS ALREADY REGISTERED
UIF-Covid-19 TERS - Employee Details"

The employee no longer appears in the list to be submitted
How did you manage to fix the incorrect details?

I work for a very small business, 5 employees including 2 part time domestic workers. My boss applied online last week but selected Pay employer for the two domestics (they don’t have bank accounts) and Pay Employee for us 3 who have bank accounts. Our bank details were entered. A very small payment was received into his business account on 21st presumably for domestics but so far nothing into individual bank accounts. Has anyone received an individual direct UIF payment yet as an employee?

So company resubmitted last week Thursday via email the CSV file. Money paid into the company bank account today but now the manager is spinning me another story saying the owner is only going to release the money to us next week on the last day of the month. :mad:

I have not managed to sort it out yet. No employee details are visible and no payment received yet. Sent them an email about the issue with no response yet. Impossible to get through on their phone lines.

Arent they supposed to pay the money within 2 days? Try and find the MOA and see but Im sure that was one of the requirements. I would report them.
