What is the GEHS

The Government Employees Housing Scheme (GEHS) is an employee benefit housing scheme that offers housing access support services to government employees.

In addition to GEPF and GEMS, the State as employer administers an employee housing assistance scheme (GEHS) to ensure that employees have access to adequate housing on a sustainable basis.

Similar to other employers (companies), the GEHS offers housing access support services specifically to government employees in national and provincial government departments and related public institutions.
