Regarding a GEPF death benefit claim:
“My siblings and I struggled for over 7 years with our late father’s claim at the GEPF when we found Janene. She was honestly our last hope because we were ready to give up after all the visits to GEPF that resulted in nothing. We signed the documents and Janene started the process of which she reported back to us weekly. The weekly updates she gave us brought back all the hope because we saw progress. Within a short period of time we received our payments and it was unbelievable. I will forever thank Janene for her professionalism, kindness, patience, fairness and for being trustworthy. I strongly recommend Janene for her quick services for any GEPF problems that people are facing.” – Yonela

I have sent you and email regarding your query. I can follow-up on the claim to see what the problem is. Regards, Janene
What is your cost for your service, do not want to be unable to pay you is the claim fails.
Good day, my fee is payable once your claim is finalized. In other words there are no fees payable upfront and if the claim fails and there is no pay-out to you, I do not ask a fee. You are welcome to email me your query and I’ll advise from there. Regards Janene
Greetings Janene, I’m struggling to get my benefit from GEPF I’m not getting any feedback from them I applied in 2018 june but nothing is forthcoming I almost gave because I’m so depressed by the GEPF uncaring staff up until I came across your service suggestion on hello-peter web, can you please help me ?
Good day Sibusiso, I have sent you an email with details on how I can assist you. Regards

Good day George
Due to the National Lockdown GEPF is currently not attending to any redress claims. I suggest you contact them directly for further information. Regards
Hope you well!
I just want to follow up to find out if the Pension redress is paying out beneficiaries?
I am getting no information when I call in regarding this.
My mother’s status shows approved with the period of approval.
Dear Veronique, the feedback I received from GEPF is that they are currently not processing Redress payments. Pension redress was an additional task given to GEPF to handle the payment after PSCBC made all the decisions. This is not the core functions of GEPF and therefore it is placed on hold until after the lockdown. The few personnel at work already struggle to pay the normal claims and the additional load cannot also be accommodated. I suggest you follow-up once the National Lockdown is lifted. Regards, Janene
What will happen if I die within 5 years of pension, will i forfeit everything?
Dear Margaret, should it happen that a pensioner passes on within a year, two or three years (less than 5 years) after going on pension, the remaining money will then be paid out to the spouse if the spouse is still alive, or to the beneficiaries listed by the member on the nomination form. That is what is referred to as a five-year balance.If the pensioner passes on after five years of being on pension, there will not be any money paid out to the family, but if the spouse is still alive, the spouse will receive a spouse pension until he/she passes away.
My father passed on on 2010 & I was one of the beneficiaries…my younger sister told me that my mother is claiming pension redress..& she told me that pension redress is for the spouses only.. however i feel like shes hiding some information about this…I would like to know we as children of late who were also listed as beneficiaries do not qualify on this ?

Good day Spies, yes I can assist with the pending matter. I have sent you an email with further information on my services. Regards, Janene
Hi JaneneI need your assistance in tracking my sister’s death claim documents were sent in july
Dear Kedilatile, you first need to follow-up with the Employer to ensure the documents were sent through and received by the GEPF. Once you have confirmation you can contact me for assistance at GEPF side.
I sent my complaint about Pension Redress (that i did not receive) to Goverment Employees Pension Ombudsman in September 2021 and was told to wait for 4 months before i get a response. I reminded them in January 2022. They do not respond to my emails. Ultimately they said my file has been sent to Legal Dept. Kindly trace for me how far my complaint is with their legal department and whether i am going to be refunded.
Thank you for your query with regards to the REDRESS pension pay-out.
There is no definite indication when GEPF will process REDRESS payments. Pension redress was an additional task given to GEPF to handle the payment after PSCBC made all the decisions. This is not the core functions of GEPF and therefore it is placed on hold until after the lockdown. The few personnel at work already struggle to pay the normal claims and the additional load cannot also be accommodated. Should you have any further queries I suggest you contact the PSCBC directly. Unfortunately I do not assist with REDRESS payments.Regards
I lodged a death claim and since August 2022 they are veryfing estate account .can they verify for more than 2 months.
Good day Matshelane, I cannot say for certain how long it will take as I do not know the detail of the claim. You are welcome to contact me should you need my assistance to follow-up with GEPF. Regards,Janene
