How to Apply SASSA Grant in South Africa

Complete the SASSA Application form online (remember that only you, the applicant, or an SASSA official may fill out the form). When completing online you will get the SMS for approval, if you apply at any SASSA Office, you will get a receipt. Keep it as proof that you applied.


Putting it in a nutshell, there has been an increase in SASSA grants by a few percent, including the extension of the SRD R35 grant to 1 year. Moreover, SASSA welcomes more people by increasing the number of beneficiaries by 1.5%. However, it’s crucial to discern between authentic and false information regarding grants. For instance, President Cyril Ramaphosa recently announced the extension of the SRD grant in 2024. Yet, past instances, such as money lenders targeting SASSA beneficiaries with fake news about loans, underscore the importance of verifying information through official channels. If uncertain about grant payout dates or extensions, contacting the SASSA office directly can prevent falling victim to fraud or scams and safeguard personal information.
