Beneficiaries are currently experiencing difficulties in getting the Special Covid-19 R350 Social Relief of Distress (SRD) grant reinstated.
As part of the SRD grant, President Ramaphosa reinstated the grant for the socially distressed until March 2022 for a total of R350.
Child support grants (CSGs) have changed since they were introduced, including the inclusion of unemployed caregivers in their eligibility criteria.
The South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) permits people who have canceled their grants because of employment to reapply for reinstatement if their circumstances have changed.
