If your Unemployment Insurance Fund (UIF) status says “sent to PayMaster,” it means that your UIF claim has been processed and authorized for payment by the Department of Employment and Labour, and the payment has been sent to the PayMaster system for processing.
The PayMaster system is responsible for managing the payment of UIF benefits, including processing payments and distributing them to beneficiaries. Once your payment has been sent to PayMaster, it may take some time for the payment to be processed and for the funds to be credited to your account, depending on the payment method you have chosen and the processing time of your bank.
It is important to note that while the status “sent to PayMaster” indicates that your payment has been authorized, it does not necessarily mean that your payment has been processed or paid out yet. It is advisable to continue checking your UIF status regularly or contact the UIF call center for further information or assistance regarding the status of your claim and payment.
