When a member is retrenched, dismissed or resigns, a Member Benefit Claim form should be completed by the employer and submitted to SALT Employee Benefits.
All relevant fields on the Member Benefit Claim form must be accurately completed, signed by the member and employer and stamped by the employer with a company stamp. This form must be accompanied with the following documentation:
- Copy of the member’s Identity Document (smart IDs are to be copied on both sides)
- Copy of the member’s bank statement – this must not be older than 3 months and must be stamped by the bank.
- Copy of SARS certificate (clearly showing member’s name and surname, ID number and tax number)
On receipt of the completed Member Benefit Claim form and the supporting documentation as listed above, the administrator of the Fund will process the claim. No claim will be processed on receipt of incomplete information on the Member Benefit Claim form or missing documentation.
