Here’s How Much Sassa Grant Payments Will Be May 2023


Here Are the May 2023 Sassa Grant Payment Amounts

Every month, the South African Social Security Agency provides subsidies to millions of needy people in South Africa so they can buy necessities. Grant payments to recipients increased in April for those who received these funds.

Over 18 million people get social assistance each month from the South African Social Security Agency (Sassa). The amount of money recipients of permanent grants got grew in April and will continue to do so in May.

Sassa gives recipients a number of long-term awards. These long-term awards include the Older Persons Grant, the Disability Grant, the War Veterans Grant, the Child Support Grant, the Care Dependency Grant, the Foster Care Grant, and the Child Support Grant Top-up.

Enoch Godongwana, the finance minister, said in February 2023 that R30 billion would be allocated for increases in permanent social handouts that are indexed to inflation. Grant recipients started getting these bigger grants in April.

  • Older Persons grant – R2,080
  • Older Persons 75 years and older – R2,100
  • Disability grant – R2,080
  • War Veterans grant – R2,100
  • Child Support grant – R500
  • Child Support grant (Top-up) – R500 + R250
  • Care Dependency grant – R2,080
  • Foster Care grant – R1,120
  • Grant-In-Aid – R500

Several of Sassa’s permanent grants will be increased again in October 2023. It’s important to note that the Social Relief of Distress (SRD) grant is not a permanent grant and the amount received by beneficiaries, R350, has not been increased.

Each month’s first week sees the start of Sassa’s award payments to recipients. The distribution of subsidies for elderly people will start grant payments in May 2023 on Wednesday, 3 May 2023.

Grant Payment Dates For May 2023 

  • Older Persons Grant – Wednesday, 3 May 2023
  • Disability Grant – Thursday, 4 May 2023

At the Post Office on these days, Sassa grants are paid. Beneficiaries of grants may also pick up their funds at a number of retail establishments, such as Pick N Pay, Boxer, Usave, Shoprite, and Checkers.

Grants can also be deposited directly into recipients’ bank accounts, if they like. Since it enables recipients to access their funds whenever they want, it is a desirable choice for many.
