SASSA temporary disability grants had been extended during 2020 to reduce the hardship felt by those clients who were unable to re-apply for the grant. However, these grants lapsed at the end of December 2020.
April is the last month left to apply for SASSA's Special Relief of Distress grant which sees beneficiaries get R350 per month. Applicants are encouraged to contact SASSA offices if they have not yet received their social grant payments.
