  4. Amanda Townsend

    Good day,

    I am requesting a confirmation letter for Netcare Hospital stating that my mother receives a SASSA “Old Age Grant”. Her Id. Nr. is 431109 0003 XXX.


    I have battled since May 18 to register online. I went 6 times to the Midrand offices on Mondays just to stand in a queue for hours and nobody in the offices. This is really frustrating as we have to loan money for fuel and we are getting nowhere…..My husband received a pin immediately but when he tries to upload the pdf scanned forms, it returns with a message that he will receive an email. I tried in June and was told to link my documents but it return with a message invalid as soon as I started. I also saw a telephone number on the form which is not mine. So please investigate
