** You only have to confirm your existing application once via this web site or the above WhatsApp number and not many times on every channel.
** SASSA will only process one confirmation received from each applicant.
1. Will I get payments from August 2021 till March 2022?
** There will be NO AUTOMATIC QUALIFICATION – all applications must satisfy the criteria and will be subjected to the entire validation process
** This means that any change to the financial circumstances of the applicant may result in the grant not being approved for subsequent months, or approved for some months but not all
2. Why it is important to re-apply?
** People’s circumstances may have changed over time;
** In order to confirm clients’ personal details, assess their income and financial status;
** Applicants need to accept the declaration and consent, which has been strengthened to comply with the Protection of Personal Information Act (POPIA) which came to effect on 21 July 2021;
** In order to access or to have the application reconsidered for the Social Relief of Distress Grant, an applicant must grant consent for SASSA to verify his or her identity, residency, income or social security benefits with any other institution deemed necessary by SASSA.
3. When should I provide my banking details?
Our new process will now request the applicants to provide their banking details upfront, so that we can process payment as soon as they meet the criteria
4. Can Caregivers apply?
** Care givers who are not receiving any grant on their own behalf will also be eligible to apply
** All care givers (all the child grants – CSG, CDG and FCG) can apply. They have to apply through the same channels, as with any other applicant.
** Care givers who also receive an adult grant (Old Age or Disability) will not qualify for this grant, as the state already supports them financially
** Care givers who receive grants under the system generated numbers can apply using the “7777” number – the system will accept these numbers and we will then validate against Socpen to ensure that they are current care givers
** If approved –that is if the only income they have is the child grant, then the R350 will be paid directly into the account in which they receive their child grant
