6 years unpaid provident fund

mibf is useless and serious action need to be taken against them . i claimed my 6 years provident fund during 2016 i never received a cent. i also wrote complain and send it to pension fund adjudicator. Mibf and my former employer where found guilty and ordered mibf to do calculation and send it to my former employer . Actually my former employer deducted the money from my wages but never sent it to mibf, is their responsibility to collect the fund from employers and to make sure that registered employers submit all members funds .Now i stuck in dark.

Awaiting Payout

I am helping my father as he took early retirement at work due to him not being able to work anymore. I handed his documents in March 2018. They said they will process the documents. Then they kept calling for verification. When that was done they called as his Tax Number was incorrect. He sorted that out and I sent them the documents and the guy busy with my fathers claim assured him everything is in order and that my father will receive the payout within 2 weeks. Then after 2 weeks they call again to say his ID Number is incorrect as his old ID number shows on the forms and they need his New ID number. This has been almost 3 months now and he never received any payout as yet. What are those people doing there? They need to let people know what is still needed but now you need to phone every time to ask when pay out will be received , then you will hear there is still things outstanding. Its ridiculous!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No assistance

I am trying to assist my 86 year old mother to get her Pension payout from MIBFA. First they delay by asking for power of attorney, which i have submitted, and now they say they need it hand delivered. How am I supposed to take more time off work for this. Surely the emailed copy which i sent which is stamped by a commissioner of oaths should be sufficient. Everytime i submit something, they come back with another delay or piece of paper that is outstanding. My mother deserves to have her money paid out before she dies. Please help.

No pay out

Does any one do anything, about provident pay outs. Is there someone who can take this matter to court, regarding pay outs. The longer you wait the more you should get in interest. Maybe we must consider recruiting juluis malema to assist us. We need to be heard.....

Still Waiting

I have submitted a claim on the 8th February 2018. Every time a person follows up its a new date for the payout or something else they need. It was confirmed that the claim has been processed and they advised that we count 30 working days from that date. After that we called again, and then they said they needed to confirm some details again. We confirmed and they said 2 weeks. 2 weeks later, nothing received and decided to followed up again and they said claim was submitted to the payouts department, 7 working days from the 23rd April 2018. Still nothing. This is really messing a person around. What more does a person need to do to speed this process.

Death Benefit

I lost a good friend to death. I was nominated as his beneficiary but now the board needs to decide who else is entitle to a pay out.

Why do you nominate a beneficiary if the board must decide for you. Surely this is the right of a person to make his own decision.

Where is the human right to own choice?

No Payment - Why?

Dear Mibfa

Gary Colin Petzer
I applied for my surplus payment I believe in 2015 I have supplied all documentation requested to your Johannesburg office including a Hanis verification form which I submitted to the surplus helpdesk in 2017, I have called numerous times the call centre and have been told on 3 occasions all was in order and they would send a note requesting the speeding up of my payment however up to date I have not received the payment of Rands 100,199.98 as per your surplus statement date issued 2016-08-25.

Please could I have some assistance with the above request for my payment as I reside in Cuba and basically return once a year also each time I call your call centre it’s at quite a cost, should you have the need to contact me please do not hesitate via e-mail or my mobile contact number as below in Cuba.

Thanking you kindly in advance

Regards,

Mibfa

Hi all.

My brother put his claim in for his surplus in September 2015. After having to submit and re-submit documents over and over again, MIBFA eventually got to the point of telling him that his money will pay out in three weeks time. This has been since December last year. My brother has been living with cancer for the last five years, and i get the feeling they will try delay payments till he passes away hoping they will not have to pay out. Three weeks ago I went with my brother to the MIBFA offices in JHB. when we got to the counter the person who assisted us was absolutely rude. obviously either racist or has a serious lack of training and work ethics.
Instead of her greeting, she just asked for his ID, which he gave to her promptly. After checking something on the system, she abruptly asked , "What are you doing here" at this point i was already quite frustrated and irritated by the lack of assistance and the overall atmosphere within the department, and i replied by saying, what do you think he's doing here, he wants to know when his money is paying out, as he was promised he would get it in December. the response i got was as follows:- Keep quiet you have nothing to say, he can speak for himself. After a bit of an argument, i told my brother, let's go, we're wasting our time. the employee looked at me and said yes you're wasting your time.

We left and went to the head office at MIBFA and requested to see a supervisor to try sort out the problem. My brother spoke to the security downstairs and explained what had happened, and requested to see a supervisor. the security phoned someone and gave the phone to my brother and told him that he can speak to the head of the department. My brother explained the whole history of how long he has been waiting for his surplus to pay out. The Head of the department a MR David Moloko promised the money would pay out in three weeks time. Three weeks have gone by and once again no payment.

I believe its time to organise a march on there head office in JHB. AS NOBODY IS DOING ANYTHING ABOUT THE LACK OF SERVICE AT MIBFA. This is most likely due to fraud and misappropriation of funds.

HOW LONG ARE WE GOING TO ALLOW THESE PEOPLE TO CARRY ON STEALING FROM US AND OUR FAMILIES.
From looking through all the MIBFA complaints it seems as if there is really nobody at MIBFA that can help resolve any of the payouts.
if you've been told your money will pay out in whatever time period and it has not happened please feel free to contact me at the following email address. [email protected]

If we can get enough people together and all put in a little money maybe we can afford to get a lawyer collectively. this might seem extreme, however there does not seem to be any other way to get your own money from MIBFA.

If anybody has got suggestions on how to resolve this any other way please let me know.
