COVID-19 > COVID-19 Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) > I am registered with SARS for UIF, but not with the Department of Labour. Can I receive TERS benefits?

Many employers are registered with SARS for UIF payment purposes, but have never signed up with the UIF. As TERS benefit claims require a UI Registration number, some employers have been unable to apply for TERS benefits. SARS is now assisting the UIF with registering all SARS-registered employers with the UIF. 

Once this is completed, the newly registered employer can submit back-dated declarations as far as possible, facilitating them in claiming the TERS benefit.
