Self-Employed - Benefits


As a self-employed person you are entitled to several benefits:

Sickness Benefit
Maternity Benefit/Grant
Funeral Grant
Invalidity Pension
Old age Contributory Grant/PensionĀ 
Survivors’ Benefit

The features of these benefits are essentially the same as those offered to employed persons but there are
differences in the Sickness Benefit and the Maternity Benefit.

Self-employed persons are however not entitled to unemployment and employment injury because they do not contribute to those funds.
