What is the SASSA Disability Grant?

SASSA Disability Grant

South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) is helping millions of disabled people by providing monthly payments. Those citizens who are physically or mentally disabled and can not work to earn money are eligible for this grant payment.

SASSA will provide you with a permanent grant payment if your disability is longer than 12 months. However, if your disability is temporary then your grant payment will be temporary as well.

The grant helps cover basic living expenses, medical needs, and other essential requirements for disabled individuals. Applicants must meet specific eligibility criteria and undergo a medical assessment to determine the extent of their disability.

The grant is paid monthly and provides a lifeline to individuals who face physical, sensory, or intellectual impairments.
