On Monday, it was announced that all Temporary Disability Grants which were extended from February to December 2020 have lapsed. For more on this keep reading…

Temporary Disability Grants provide South Africans with financial assistance while they are unable to work, due to injury or illness, for about 6 to 12 months.

SASSA has provided more than 200 000 South Africans with this temporary grant and it has positively impacted the lives of these beneficiaries.

A ten-month extension was granted before medical reviews would be required again due to the strict lockdown implemented in March 2021 and the restrictions on personal movement.

The unexpected suspension of these grants resulted in a backlog as those beneficiaries rushed to doctors to receive their medical reviews to qualify for the grant.

Many are concerned that the re-application process takes place during lockdown level three, where people are restricted in terms of access and movement, which means that they would not be able to seek medical reviews without difficulty.

SASSA said that they understand the difficulties beneficiaries may encounter, hence they are looking at what they need to put into place as an integral measure to be able to provide support to those in need.

SASSA beneficiaries are reminded that they can apply for grants online and can choose to receive their grants through their bank accounts, instead of waiting in long queues outside SASSA offices.

Welding is one of the many kinds of trades that can provide a decent living and secure job. There are many jobs available for welders, but it's important to note what kind of welding you want to do before choosing your trade. It's also important to understand that besides knowing how to weld, you must know how to properly use tools and read blueprints, so that you can be as safe as possible while on the job.

When you hear the word "welder," perhaps your mind conjures images of a burly man or woman covered in a suit, hunched over an electric arc welder, furiously fusing two pieces of metal together.  Welding is a process that can be used in many different industries. Although the word "welder" might bring to mind someone who works with metal, welding is done in all sorts of industries – from construction to the manufacturing industry.
