Is it permissible to claim UIF?

Q: My question relates to UIF claims. Is it permissible to claim UIF benefits from the fund? If not, then can one claim back to the extent of one's contribution value ie 1.5% percent of ones monthly salary over the number of years that he contributed?

A: Yes.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
