Lindiwe Zulu announced that SASSA has begun the process of suspending social grants, except for the foster care payments, paid to 177 108 public servants.


SASSA has announced that payments will continue after they were suspended due to the unrest. They will also be using their remaining budget in the Social Relief of Distress programme so that they can provide support in the form of food parcels, cash and food vouchers.


SASSA has decided to bring back their food relief programme after the country saw violent outbreaks this past week. They are however warning against fake applications for vouchers.


The R350 grant will be coming to an end at the end of April. The Black Sash has called on government to not put an end to the grant. 


To avoid fraud, SASSA considers a random selection of applications each month to do internal verification and quality assurance. Once the process is completed the applicants who qualify will be processed, whereas others will be 'referred' or declined.


Did you know that if SASSA rejected you when you applied to benefit from the R350 grant, you can appeal and possibly be funded? However, if you don't appeal, you won't get a second chance due to a lack of funds.
