Will SASSA Increase in 2024?

SASSA has yet to say if there will be a raise this year, but you should know that some social grants were raised in October 2022. The Disability Grant increased from R1,890 to R1,990, and the War Veterans Grant increased from R1,890 to R1,990. Care dependency increased from R1,890 to R1,990. The Old Age Grant increased to R1,990. The grant for people over the age of 75 increased by 5.2%, from R2,000 in April 2022 to R2,010 in October 2022. 

There was also an increase in the Foster Care Grant from R1,050 to R1,070,  Child Support from R460 to R480, and the Grant in Aid from R460 to R480.

What Is the SASSA Child Grant This Month?

The value of the Child Support Grant is R720 per child per month as of October 2022. This includes the basic Child Support Grant of R480 per child per month and the top-up CSG of R240 per child per month. The value of the grant is subject to change every six months, in April and October of each year. The top-up CSG of R240 was introduced on June 1, 2022, to assist relatives or primary caregivers in providing for an orphan’s basic needs.

Each primary caretaker is eligible to receive the Child Support Grant for up to six children who are neither their legal nor biological children.

Will SASSA Pay For April And May 2024?

Yes. The South African government has announced that it will continue to pay the special COVID-19 Social Relief of Distress (SRD) grants for the months of April and May. This is good news for those who rely on these grants to meet their basic needs.

It’s important to note that these payments will be made monthly by month rather than all at once. This means you will receive your monthly payment as it becomes available rather than a lump sum payment for both months at once.

Bottom Line

For SASSA grant recipients, it’s crucial to keep up to date with payment dates and have all the necessary information to receive your payments smoothly. You should also be vigilant of misleading information, criminals, and scammers, particularly during grant payment days when many transactions are being made.

Exercise caution when accessing your social grants, including avoiding carrying large amounts of cash and giving preference to the elderly, frail, and people living with disability in queues. It’s also a good idea to check and update your banking details on the online platform when required and ensure that you get your card back after every purchase or withdrawal. Following these tips can help protect yourself and your grant payments.
