Claiming from the UIF fund

Q: At work, during the lockdown, we were working on a rotational basis. Hence we never get paid for the days we never work. However, the company has put in a request from the UIF fund. Is it permissible for me to consume this money from the UIF, should the amount be more then my total contribution towards it?

A: Yes.

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