Workers Joining CIP
It is the responsibility of employers to pay contributions on behalf of their workers to CIP, after the employer has signed an Employer Application for Membership.
The worker is covered by the fund when his / her employer enters the worker's name and details through the online contributions system and pays contributions on behalf of the worker. For the worker to be eligible for benefits, his / her claim must fall within the terms and conditions of the policies.
