Anyone under the age of 18 is considered a “child” in this circumstance.
This came after the Department of Social Development (DSD) recently put into effect measures that will significantly boost the amount that is typically paid out for this grant in an effort to benefit this group of beneficiaries.
As a result, all eligible children will now receive a total of R720, which includes their standard R480 Child Support Grant (CSG) as well as an additional R240 (50% of the basic CSG).
It’s important to note that Sassa does not have set payment dates for the distribution of the Social Relief of Distress (SRD) R350 grant. These grants are distributed at retail merchants including Pick N Pay, Checkers, Boxer stores and Shoprite stores.
