The Government Employees Pension Fund (GEPF) has become aware of individuals falsely posing as agents or officials of the Government Employees Pension Fund who are charging a fee to assist members, pensioners and beneficiaries to claim outstanding funds.
The public and especially members, pensioners and beneficiaries should note that the GEPF deals directly with its clients and does not charge for its services nor does it endorse agents, companies or any third party individuals to act on its behalf.
Anyone who requests payment for rendering GEPF services is committing fraud and the public is urged to report such individuals or companies to the South African Police Service.
The GEPF would, therefore, like to make its members, pensioners, beneficiaries and their families aware of the following:
- The GEPF services are FREE
- No one is allowed to ask for a fee to assist GEPF current and former members, pensioners, beneficiaries and their families with respect to any GEPF provided services
- Do not share your personal information such identity document number and bank account details.
