The GEHS will also administer the application of the housing allowance and support access to housing finances, including housing subsidies and other housing programmes.

  1. I am struggling to get / fill in the GEHS certificate.

  2. Please be more user friendly. To get a certifcate is so difficult and we have no knowledge to get acces to the certificate. Why cant the HR personnel request it and submit it to the member.

  3. signing up for enrolment is problematic in its first step. kindly make it user friendly and to be progressive
