A principal member may register child dependants if:

  • Children are under the age of 21, and are totally dependent on the principal member, unemployed and are unmarried
  • Children are over the age of 21 and under the age 25 enrolled as a full-time student or apprentice at a registered and accredited academic institution and who are totally and financially dependent on the principal member and are unmarried.
  • Legally adopted children.
  • Children under the age of 21, both of whose parents have passed away, and who are financially dependent on the appointed guardian. A copy of the death certificate of such parents must be handed in as proof.
  • Members must notify the administrator within 30-days of the birth of an infant, in order to allow the child to be registered as a dependant. Monthly contributions for this dependant will be due as from the 1st day of the calendar month following the birth. No benefits will be granted unless the infant is registered as a dependant. No restriction for congenital ailments and conditions will be imposed by the Fund on a newly born child.
