R40-BILLION WORTH OF UNCLAIMED TEBA BENEFITS

 

Thousands of ex-miners recruited through TEBA many years ago, have struggled to access their retirement funds because of bureaucracy and hurdles within the system. TEBA claims it has struggled for years to locate most of the beneficiaries. Four thousand Eastern Cape ex-miners or their families today stand a chance to claim their share of R40-billion worth of benefits that was left unclaimed for decades. It is understood that most of the beneficiaries and their families are not aware they had money and could access the funds from the multinational mining companies they have worked for over the years. A large number of mineworkers from South Africa, Lesotho, Swaziland, Mozambique and Malawi died after contracting disease in the mines. Umzimkhulu Municipality understands that amongst the untraced beneficiaries, there are those who are from Umzimkhulu and surrounds. TEBA has since undertaken processes to trace these beneficiaries to ensure that all these beneficiaries owed by the mining companies get what is due to them. TEBA said they have already paid R300-million on different projects in rural “labour sending” communities ranging from pension and provident fund monies to occupational lung disease benefits. An amount of R240-million was paid to individual beneficiaries under the Medical Bureau for Occupational Diseases (MBOD) and R60-million through mineworkers’ provident funds, such as the Mines 1970 Preservation Fund, Anglo Group Provident Fund, MPF Sibanye and others (see sidebar). From Willowvale, Matatiele, Mount Fetcher, Komani to Adelaide, scores of ex-miners are sitting destitute at home with no money to support their families. You are therefore requested to go through the attached list of people listed in the TEBA list, attached. The Mayor of Umzimkhulu Municipality, Cllr. Mphuthumi Mpabanga, would like to call upon everyone who might know a former mine worker or sibling to visit Umzimkhulu TEBA Offices to inquire for their siblings.
