|Before you can get a Letter of Good Standing from the Compensation Fund, you need to be ‘COID Registered’. This basically means that the Compensation Fund lists you on their database as a South African Company which has a work environment that qualifies for employees to work in. (Please note: Some Employers are classified as Class 13 Employers, depending on their nature of business. In such a case a second registration needs to be finalised at the RMA / Rand Mutual Assurance Company – if this is applicable to your registration, we will inform you after your COIDA registration is finalised.)||If an Employer is registered with the Compensation Fund as per section 80 of the COID Act, he / she can apply for a Letter of Good Standing from the Compensation Fund. This Letter states that you are in good standing with the Compensation Commissioner and you have met all their requirements.|
If you are registered, your Company and Employees will be covered in the case of any workplace injuries. This includes all medical expenses (up to 2 years), temporary total disablement (TTD), permanent disablement (PD), funeral costs, pension for the injured Employee or in the case of fatal, pension to the Dependents of the deceased. See more information at the bottom of this page.

If any Employee gets injured on duty; or becomes sick with ‘Occupational Diseases’, the Employer will be protected against civil claims. Most contracts and tenders require that the Company needs COIDA Registration before he / she can apply for any contracts / tenders. For example when you are starting a Construction Company.
Employees who get injured on duty or those who contracted occupational diseases can claim compensation for temporary or permanent disablement. These claims will be awarded according to the degree of disablement or death by the Department of Labour.
They will also be covered for reasonable medical aid expenses arising out of an injury on duty. This compensation is payable for a period of two (2) years or longer if further medical treatment is needed and if it will reduce the extent of disability.
