The South African Social Security Agency administers permanent social grants to assist the low-income population. The social grants ensure that this group of individuals is able to avoid absolute poverty by providing them with money each month.

There are currently more than 18 million South Africans who are dependent on some form of permanent social grant.


Among these grants are Old Persons’ Grants, Disability Grants, Care Dependency Grants, Social Relief of Distress Grants, War Veterans’ Grants, Foster Child Grants, Child Support Grants, as well as Grants-in-Aid.

Sassa also provides the Social Relief of Distress (SRD) grant, which pays out R350 per month to qualifying individuals. The SRD grant was originally introduced during the peak of Covid-19 pandemic in May 2020. Grants are provided on a temporary basis and will expire on 31 March.

The purpose of this article is to guide you through how to apply for one of the above-mentioned permanent social grants in August 2023.

Your perment social grant application must be submitted at your nearest Sassa branch office. The application form will be provided to you and you will need to complete it in the presence of a Sassa official. You will not be charged for the application process.

If you are applying for a grant, you will also need to submit supporting documentation. Exceptionally, Foster Child Grants are paid out according to a court order.

After your application is complete, Sassa will issue you a receipt with a reference number. This proof application serves as a validation of Sassa’s application and should be kept safe at all times.

Should your application be rejected by Sassa, you will be notified in writing why.
