Compensation Fund Bursary 2021

About the South African Compensation Fund

Falling under the umbrella of the South African Department of Labour, the compensation fund is designed to assist workers who are permanently disabled while performing their jobs, leaving them unable to support their families. Accidents happen in workplaces, despite companies’ adherence to the Department of Labour’s strict workplace health and safety guidelines.

This South African Department of Labour also offers bursaries to previously employed persons who have become ill or injured on the job or disabled, allowing them to upskill or obtain new qualifications that will enable them to continue working. Young persons with physical disabilities are also covered by this bursary programme, as are dependents of workers granted compensation fund pensions.
