COVID-19 TERS has been extended to 15 March 2021, claimants can also apply for assistance dating back to 16 October 2020.
The reinstatement of TERS benefit is only for those sectors that were not allowed to operate as a result of the Level 3 Directives and those who have been affected most as a result of the restrictions to operate. These specific sectors, businesses and employees will be identified by the National Economic Development and Labour Council (Nedlac).
There have been 3 sectors identified by the Unemployment Insurance Fund; the tourism sector, the Hospitality sector and the Liquor industry.
More sectors will be announced as soon as NEDLAC has finalised their assessment.
