The objective of this agreement will be to; introduce a Government Employees Housing Scheme (GEHS) to support, educate and advise employees on housing options and opportunities, enhance employees’ access to affordable housing, promote home ownership and facilitate asset security among employees, assist employees to access affordable housing loans and finance, assist employees to rent houses with a view to buy and own homes and provide transitional arrangements towards the GEHS.

The amount of the housing allowance paid to eligible employees shall increase from R 900 to R 1,200 per month. Employees who are eligible to receive the housing allowance but do not own a house shall continue to receive R900 per month.

The difference between the total housing allowance and the R900 shall be diverted into and accumulated in an individual-linked savings facility.
