2. 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
