Please share this article


If you are a South African citizen who qualifies for a Sassa social grant, then submitting an application is the first step. You will, however, be required to complete and submit an application form and provide supporting documents. 


Social grants provided by the South African Social Security Agency on a monthly basis make a notable difference in the lives of millions of South Africans who have no alternative source of income. But in order to enjoy the benefits of being a Sassa grant recipient, you must submit an application to the agency.

This can be done in two ways: in person at your nearest Sassa branch office or you can submit your application online on the agency’s website. 

Information on social grants and how to apply is available in the Services section of this website in all South African official languages. To submit an application in person, you will need to fill out an application form. These application forms are available at Sassa offices and can also be downloaded online.

The form must be completed in the presence of a Sassa officer. A Sassa officer will be able to assist you or your appointed person, to complete the application form if you or they are unable to do so.

You will receive a dated, stamped receipt with the name of the Sassa official who helped you with your application after the application form has been fully filled out. You must then keep the receipt given to you as evidence of your application.

The social grant administered by Sassa include the  Sassa Older Person's grant (old age pension), Child support grant, Care dependency grant, Grant in aid if you live on a social grant but need someone to take care of you, War Veteran's grant, Foster child grant and Disability grant. 

You also apply for the social relief of distress grant, provided you meet all of its eligibility requirements
