RE: PERMANENT DISABILITY
Permanent disability is an application for "boarding". The doctor must give you a certificate stating that you will be permanetly disabled. This would have to be tested by the pension or provident fund in order to help you access their funding. If you are not on a pension or provident fund then the only claim you would have is in terms of the workmens compensation.
