  4. Hi Janene, I have a challenge, I don’t have my marrieage certificate at my disposal and I enquired about getting it from Home Affairs. However I was told its going to take from 3months to 6months. The man aldready divorced me but, there is no settlement hence we were married in community of property. What do I do. I am afriad he might resign as he is in he 50’s. He is a government employee.

  5. Good day Lebo
    First of all, it must be specifically stipulated in your divorce order that you can claim against his Pension Fund. If it only says “division of joint estate” you will have to obtain a variation/amendment order stipulating your claim against his fund. Secondly, you only need a marriage certificate should it be stipulated that you can claim for “time of marriage”. You are welcome to contact me should you have any further queries, 083-320-0145. Regards Janene

    1. Xpression Assist

      Good day Theresa, I believe your file is with the Legal Section, not the Lawyers? In Legal Section they will verify the documents, approve the claim and open a CP file (non-member file). Currently they are experiencing a huge backlog in the section and the file can be with them anything between 2-4 months. Once finalized in the Legal section it will be forwarded to the Payment section for calculations and approval of payment. Trust this answers your question.

    1. Xpression Assist

      Dear Henrietta, to my knowledge it is required to submit a copy of the Divorce Decree and Settlement. I suggest discussing it with your HR, perhaps they will accept an affidavit from you and your ex-spouse but I cannot confirm whether they will.

  38. Good day
    We have been dealing with the GEPF for 2 and a half years now. In that time the divorced spouse passes away. All required documents were however submitted. The GEPF just with hold funds for no valid reason, do not answer emails, for the past 4 weeks they have said the claim is with the registrar and they were waiting for the tax directive, which has to have been received by now as SARS takes between 1 and 2 weeks with that. What can I do to get them to pay these funds that are due and how do I ensure they will pay the interest that is due? Please can you assist? They advise they take 60 days – this has been ongoing for over 32 months and I’m just at my wits end. Thank you.

    1. Xpression Assist

      Good day Lucy, because I do not have insight in what caused the delay previously I can only give information on what to do once the non-member passes away before the divorce benefit is paid. The benefit must be claimed and paid by the Executor of the Estate through the Late Estate account. Payment will not be made to any individual. The required documents are as follow:
      Completed Choice Form signed by the Executor with details of the Late Estate account.
      Bank confirmation letter of Late Estate Account
      Original certified copy of your Final Divorce Order and Settlement
      Original certified copy of the deceased’s ID
      Original certified copy of the death certificate
      Original certified copy of the Letter of Authority for Executorship
      Original certified copy of the Executor’s ID

  50. Good day. I submitted my forms today for my divorce claim. The person who helped me said that it will take anything between 3 – 6 months to pay out, and definitely nothing before 3 months, which is contradictory to the above message that says that they must pay within 60 days. I am therefore extremely confused now, and quite worried. More than that, when I asked for a reference number, he told me that I should use the calling ticket that I have received upon walking in. Is this normal practice? I lost that ticket before I even left the building. Just for record’s sake, I was sitting there at cubicle number 2 today 8 September 2022 at exactly 15:20 busy filling in the last paperwork (the form that I had to take to the bank the previous day to get stamped). The consultant assured me that all paperwork is in order and told me I’m going to wait for at the very least 3 months (90 days). Please can you maybe clarify for me? Kind regards,

      Good day Theda, the GEPF has 60 days to finalize a divorce claim (according to law) but due to an influx of claim and them experiencing a huge backlog, it can sometimes take longer. I do however endeavor to have my clients’ claims finalized as close to the 60day period as possible. I have sent you an email with information on how I can be of assistance. Regards, Janene
