Provided that they are eligible, people living in South Africa can apply for a variety of social support grants from SASSA. 

These grants include, Older persons grant, disability grant, war veterans grant, care dependency grant, foster child grant, child support grant, grant-in-aid and the social relief of distress grant.

A lapse of any of the abovementioned grants could result in some level of financial instability as the beneficiary may likely be unable to access their SASSA grants.

Some of the circumstances under which a person’s SASSA grant could lapse differ in several ways depending on the grant. One example of this is when a foster child grant has not been claimed for three consecutive months. The recipient will not receive the grant for the month following that period  

A disability grant can also lapse if the grant recipient’s period for temporary disability expires.

Here are some of the additional reasons why your SASSA grant could lapse:

  • If the grant recipient has died 
  • If the grant recipient has been admitted to a state care institution 
  • If the temporary disability period has expired
  • If the grant recipient is no longer a refugee
  • If a child turns 18 years old (child support grant)
  • If you do not claim the grant for more than 90 days 
  • If the grant recipient is out of South Africa for longer than 90 days

For any further queries or information relating to the reason why your SASSA grant may have lapsed, you can contact SASSA on their toll-free line on 0800 60 10 11 or email: SASSA at [email protected]
