                            A message to our loved ones

                            Pensioners of the EPPF are former in-service members who retire from the service of the employer and draw a pension from the EPPF.

                            Children over the age of 21 (major children) or any other beneficiaries/nominees of a death benefit can renounce their benefit by completing the Renunciation of Benefits Claim Form. Click here to download the form and submit to the Fund.

                            Spouses of deceased members and pensioners of the EPPF, as well as qualifying children in receipt of a pension are beneficiaries of the EPPF.

                            Normal Retirement


                            The EPPF’s compulsory retirement age is 65 years. However, in-service members may retire early from age 63 without penalties, subject to the employer’s conditions of service. The benefit is based on 2.17% of the in-service member’s annual average pensionable salary over the last year before retirement, for each year of pensionable service.

                            Early Retirement

                            An in-service member may retire early after reaching age 55 years. The benefit is a pension calculated in terms of a pension formula, reduced by the penalty factor of 3.9% per year for each year before age 63 years.

                            Ill-health retirement

                            An in-service member may retire at any age as a result of ill-health, provided that the Board of Trustees approves a recommendation by the EPPF Medical Panel in this regard. The benefit is calculated by making provision for a pension based on the in-service member’s pensionable salary and pensionable service accrued up to the actual retirement date plus 75% of the service that would have been completed by the in-service member from that date to the pensionable age.

                            Death after retirement

                            On the death of a pensioner, a lump sum equal to R3000 is paid to the surviving spouse or the estate;

                            Plus

                            The qualifying child/ren (biological or legally adopted children under the age of 21) are eligible for the monthly pension until the age of 21. A pension to the surviving spouse equal to 60% of the deceased pensioner’s pension at retirement before commutation, including any subsequent increases;


                            Plus

                            A further pension of 30% (for one eligible child) or 40% (for two or more eligible children) of the deceased pensioner’s pension at retirement before commutation, including any subsequent increases, in respect of any eligible children.

                            If there is no spouse’s pension payable, the percentage in respect of a single eligible child is increased to 60% of the deceased pensioner’s pension at retirement before commutation, including any subsequent increases. For two or more eligible children, the total percentage is increased to 100% of the deceased pensioner’s pension at the time of retirement before commutation, including any subsequent increases.

                            If there are no spouse’s or children’s benefits payable, a benefit equal to the excess amount of the lump sum, as specified below, over the total benefits paid to the pensioner until the time of death is paid to the estate. The lump sum comprises the following:

                            - A lump sum of R3000;

                            Plus

                            The greater of the two following calculations:

                            i. Twice the annual pensionable salary at retirement, less the pension benefits received since retirement;

                            Or

                            ii. The annual pensionable salary at retirement plus 10% of the final average pensionable salary per year of pensionable service, less pension benefits already received.

                            Triennially, the Eskom Pension and Provident Fund (“EPPF”), as per the EPPF Fund Rules, requires you, our pensioner, to complete an Evidence of Survival (“EOS”). The purpose is to verify your existence and to further ensure that our records/data are up to date for us to continue to pay your pension. 


                            How do I submit my EOS?

                            Your EOS can be submitted through one of the following options:


                            1. USSD 

                            The EPPF has launched its Unstructured Supplementary Service Data (USSD) functionality as part of the new channels. This service allows you to use your mobile phone to submit your EOS. Utilising the USSD platform means that you do not have to fill in any forms, go to the police station or worry about your form reaching the Fund on time:


                            • Simply dial *134*20072# and follow the prompts.

                            The spouse’s pension is payable for the duration of your lifetime, regardless of whether you remarry or not.

                            Depending on the investment performance of the EPPF, the Board of Trustees may declare a bonus which is payable in December of that year. Pensioners are advised in December of each year whether a bonus is payable through a newsflash.

                            There are various factors which contribute to your tax fluctuating:

                             

                            In December there was a bonus paid so your tax deduction was different from other months;

                             

                            In January there was a pension increase which also created a difference in tax payable;

                             

                            In the February payroll medical aid contributions increased. Pensioners aged 65 years and older used to get a full medical aid rebate. However as medical aid contributions increase the taxable income decreases.

                             

                            The new tax year begins in March. The Fund’s payroll system annualises tax based on the latest tax earnings and the last year’s tax tables. Since the Fund’s pension payroll runs in advance on the 1st of each month, new tax tables for the new tax year are always implemented in the April payroll. However, please note that the new tax tables implemented in April are implemented retrospectively to the March payroll as per tax changes announced in the budget speech. This means that your tax on the April payroll will include the March payroll deduction adjustments. Your tax should then stabilise from the May payroll onwards.

                            Section 18(2) of the Income Tax Act has been repealed. This means that pensioners who are 65 years and older are no longer granted the full medical aid rebate by the employer during the tax year. Instead they are granted the medical tax credits by the employer according to the number of dependants they have on their medical aid. The section of the Income Tax Act that deals with medical aid tax credits is section 6A of the Income Tax Act.

                             

                            Medical aid medical aid expenses (such as medication, doctor’s consultations etc.) and tax credits in respect of expenses are granted during the assessment year of tax returns. Should it happen that the pensioner has paid too much tax due to medical expenses not being deductible by the employer; SARS will refund the excess to the pensioner.

                             

                            Medical aid contributions and medical expenses are granted in terms of section 6B of the Income Tax Act.

                             

                            The Medical Scheme Fees Tax Credit for individuals is a credit which applies in respect of contributions paid by the pensioner who has a taxable income up to the last day of the tax year to a registered medical scheme. The amount of credit is based on the following values per month in the year of assessment in respect of which the contributions were paid in respect of the pensioner, the pensioner’s spouse and any other dependants.

                            The employer’s contribution is not disclosed on the payslip but it is disclosed on the tax certificate under the deduction code 4493. The pensioner’s own medical aid contributions are disclosed under code 4005. Both of these amounts are added to form the total medical aid contributions, which is listed under code 4497, the medical aid tax credits are disclosed on code 4116, the medical aid expenses will be disclosed on code 4120 as a zero value since EPPF is not privy to pensioner’s expenses so the medical expenses credit will be granted by SARS.

                             

                            SARS gets this information when the Fund submits the tax certificates on the pensioners’ behalf during the employer annual submission time.

                            The Evidence of Survival (EOS) form is used by the EPPF to ascertain whether people in receipt of a pension from the EPPF, who live outside South Africa are still alive and are rightfully in receipt of a pension. EOS forms are sent out annually to pensioners living outside South Africa and pensioners have a few months in which to complete them from the date on which the form is sent to them.

                             

                            The EPPF always advises pensioners of the opening and closing dates for EOS form submission. Should the EPPF not receive your form by the EOS submission closing date, your pension will be suspended until the form is received. Please contact the EPPF if you have not received an EOS form or Click here to log into your profile and download the form.

                            Yes, you are still obliged to submit your returns as a confirmation of the information submitted by the employer on your behalf. In your instance, the EPPF represents the employer as the provider of a monthly income.

                            An AA88 is a garnishee order issued to the employer (the EPPF) against you by SARS for monies owed by yourself to SARS. Monies owed are usually due to non-submission of tax returns and non-payment of tax owed. An AA88 was previously referred to as an IT88.

                             

                            When the employer or the EPPF receives this garnishee order it is required by law to comply and deduct the amount owed to SARS from your pension and pay it over to SARS on your behalf. This might affect your other deductions, as a SARS garnishee order takes precedence over other deductions.

                             

                            Please contact your nearest SARS office to resolve your outstanding tax issues. You can contact SARS on 0800 00 72 77.
