I read with sadness that Government is considering using GEPF funds to bail out Eskom and other struggling SOEs. The fund is worth R1,8 trillion and is reported to have had a long – term funding surplus of R9,1 billion in 2006. But by 2018, the fund surplus is gone and the fund now has a deficit of R583 billion. This is a fund in serious financial trouble and it is not fair to the members and pensioners alike to even consider using the funds to bail out anyone.
