Unfortunately, the Social Relief of Distress grant which sees beneficiaries receiving R350 per month comes to an end this month on 31 January. There is no actual set date for when this grant will be paid. Payment is done once SASSA approves and receives all required information.
Many calls have come for the government to extend this grant or have it be changed into a Basic Income Grant.
Both the President and Minister of Social Development, Lindiwe Zulu, have made a suggestion about introducing a Basic Income Grant but there has however nothing has been confirmed
SASSA has developed a fraud prevention strategy and exercises zero tolerance to any person who commits fraud in the social grant environment.
Beneficiaries are encouraged to always be honest and update SASSA if their financial circumstances change. SASSA will be doing checks to ensure that the financial information provided by beneficiaries is complete and accurate so that the grants are provided to those who qualify for them.
Furthermore, every citizen in this country has a responsibility to report wrongdoing and this extends to the reporting of grants being received by citizens who do not qualify for them.
SASSA said it will continue to call on citizens to report the misuse and incorrect payment of social grants and promised to continue preventing fraud.
