This booklet offers a summary of the benefits offered by the Food Workers Medical Benefit Fund. It does not replace the registered rules of the Fund,but attempts to summarise this important information. Therefore, should a dispute arise, the rules of the Fund will apply and not this summary.


A general waiting period of 4 weeks (to the day)is applicable to all new members and 2 (full) months to newly added dependants who are not registered on a medical scheme prior to joining our scheme; or where the break in membership between schemes was longer than 90 days; or in the case of seasonal workers and their dependants who rejoin the Fund after 12 months since they were last a member/dependant.
