Many people don’t even know that they can be paid out by the RAF which is the Road Accident Fund after being in an accident. The RAF was created to provide cover for all South African drivers whilst on the road. We will show you how to claim from the RAF in 3 simple steps and what the RAF covers and pays out. The problem with a Road Accident Fund settlement is that people don’t know when it will pay out and generally citizens have to wait years to be paid out. The RAF try’s to have settlements paid out within in 5 years but the department has stated that it will most likely take up to 5 years to be paid out.
