GEPFDispatchLive reports that the Government Employees Pension Fund (GEPF) is looking for hundreds of people in the Eastern Cape who left the public service without claiming their government pensions.  

GEPF finance administrator Rhulani Macheke said they were working with various stakeholders to distribute the list of the names of beneficiaries, whom he said needed to call them immediately.  He added:  “We have a lot of unclaimed pension funds and we need to get these members.  We are now also publishing the names of these people on the newspapers and we ask members of the public if they know anyone who is not aware to kindly tell them about this.”  He also indicated that since they started with the process in the past two years, they have been getting pension beneficiaries daily.  “But the numbers are coming at a slow pace, which is why we are extending our way of communication.”
