The 2021 Budget speech by the Minister of Finance, Tito Mboweni, highlighted changes to regulation 28 of the Pension Funds Act to allow for increased investment in national infrastructure projects, and the introduction of auto-enrolment for all employed workers.
As we enter 2021 we do so with a quiet determination, fuelled by hope and optimism
that the New Year will indeed bring back some type of normality. We remain thankful
that many of us are still healthy during this time. Our heartfelt thoughts go out to
everyone that have lost a loved one during the Covid-19 pandemic.
As a ripple effect of the Covid-19 pandemic and the financial strain it placed on employers, some employers
are currently retrenching members. Many of these members arrive at the client contact centres unprepared
without any claim forms or the necessary supporting documents required.
In what is hopefully the aftermath of the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, it is clear that 2020 has been a trying and difficult year for everyone. Even now, we are all still facing the unknown and much uncertainty of what lies ahead. As our recovery rate remains consistent, we have to keep up our vigilance by wearing our masks, washing our hands and distancing ourselves from others in public spaces. We should remain accountable and responsible for our own and others’ health and wellbeing.
