  1. This measure is a very welcome one, taking into account the long queues during the month end pay. This should be a permanent solution

  2. Dear ma’am, please advise the process my husband needs to do as he is not employed due to shoulder blade damaged. ID 6209295229083

  3. When will sassa open for us that have seen the dockter all ready I have not received money for 3 mounths .Thank u

  4. Do all the unemployment people qualify for this covid -19 grands?Why not help the self-employed who does not have an income know ?

  5. There is free family planning why not use it i feel that the old age pension must be increased and remain like that the poor people has to live if such little money it’s not fare give them some dignity so they can live their lives better they have the right to do so and I’m sure government also wants that not all of the elderly has family to support and help them my heart goes out to them.

  6. Why do people have to always look for faults with our president and make stupid commends where is your self-respect i don’t think it’s easy to run a country and satisfy every one we are millions that need help and I’m sure the president and cabinet knows what they are doing we must rather ask the people why they are behaving so baldly and change their way of thinking and stop thinking just about themselves and start thinking and respecting the people around you.

  7. Thanks for the update on the grant payment dates.
    1. But we are still waiting to know about the people who turned 60 years during the lockdown.
    How are they going to get their old age pension.
    2. Covid-19 distress for the unemployed, they are no application forms.

  8. Thank you for taking care of the disadvantaged

  9. I wish that someone can help me to get back a disability grant that my son used to get he has special needs n was rejected his grant when we reviewed n I think it’s not fair what is happening to the ones that really need the grant

  10. Kan hulle nie elk maand die uitbetaling dorn volgens die weeke vandie maand nie
    Bv. Eerste week ouderdoms betaling.
    Tweede werk ongeskilklike betaling.
    Derde week kinder tolae.
    Dan sal daar meer geld oor n langer tyd wees in n huis houding en DIE SKOPPER sal minder beheer he oor mense se geld.
    Teen die 4de en 5de week van die maand kry die algemene arbeider en huishulp hulle betaling.
    Dankie vir julle onbaatsugtelik werk.
    Ns. Minfer kanse vir groot roof togte minder geld word vervoer na kleiner dorp.

  11. It Sooooo sorry that our whites that’s unemployed can’t benefit from SASSA and we the ones who pay our taxes Shame on the government!!

  12. Please I need to apply for a child support grant however no response on email or toll free number. Please help! !

    Regards

  13. Pensioners also got debit order for funeral cover going off on the 1st of every and policies will sassa broadcast country wide that it should happen in the 7th as extra charges from banks for insufficient funds

  14. I fully agree with the call EFF is making that these grants must be extended to more than six months, Infact these grants must be permanent.

  15. Since the announcement of the social grant increase, as a tax payer I am confused as this money is going to help are people through the pandemic or this is just a HUGE BONUS to “BOMASHONISA”. Aa saying this because most of social grand beneficiaries in my township do not have their cards with them as they are owned by people who they land money from. Moreover many of them are illiterate and some are liretate but do not track how much do they owe. What the government has done is good to help our people. But the is no good management of money as it is not going to benefit the relevant people.

  16. Just want to ask where to go apply for child support grant? Since our children suffering. We tried all the contact numbers with no success. Please help south africa. Mostly the free state province.

  17. Hi to whom this may concern it’s very difficult getting through on the landline to apply for the unemployment fund is there another method I can us I do realize you people are under lots of stress

  18. My comment is this good about payment and grant must not be reduced, and how will people apply for unemployment benefits. Government cant give and take Mr. Malema is right when he say grants must be increasing

  20. Hello I take treatment for Tb ask sassa grant for Tb they give me to filter they date to meet doctor hi sign everything hi sand back to sassa grant I went from sassa they did everything before they finish we get loocksheding then they give sli to next week when I came was close that is time starting lockdown I want know what cane do now

  21. Why do the pensioeners not get paid their grants before the end of the month? If paid on the 4th, 1. The banks and shops are full of viruses potentially from all that shopped after month end pay. 2. The shelves are empty of all specials. 3. Many people avoid the end of month rush and only go to the shops by the 3rd/4th day after payday. As the grant people still barely receive enough to stay alive, although very grateful for what they receive, can the major shops not be forced to on showing I’d ‘s give special discounts for the elderly to ensure that their money can go a bit further??

  22. What happens to the elderly that normally gets the money paid into their bank accounts is that also only going to happen on the 4 th now

  23. As sassa beneficiaries already can’t wait for the 1st of each month to buy food now we have to wait until the 4th of each month……how will that make the queues shorter if we desperately wait for the 1st of each month for our sassa money now we must wait until the 4th…….and the president says he cares about “his” people” what a joke…..i hope the president (who don’t need money anyway) & ministers & government officials are also going to be paid only the 4th of each month to feel the pinch…..sorry to all my sassa fellow mates that we have to wait until the 4th…..the government once again fail “his” own people…….

  24. Hi I need to review again I’m due since February I have been collecting disability grant it lapse need to renew wat do I do my funds from my grant help me to eat etc call on 0712825082 miss suraya

  25. Its very easy collecting grants with a sassa grant card but as was announced how to other people get through in this difficult time to collect our so called payment with no finicial help the numbers and emails do not go through….please help. Thank you

  26. People with disabilities related to other conditions,how should they renew their their pension as Sasha not working due covid19,by avoid gathering at their office,cause for their renewal should authorized by doctors

  27. I am impressed that they could organise this so quickly when I’ve still not managed to get any old age pension grant, not one cent since December when I tried. I recently had to undergo an Emergency Quadtripple Bypass & am now almost 70 years old yet have not had a cent. I have my green ID book, plus 3months bank statements, been to a lawyer for assistance & still no help from anyone. I have been to Bellville SASSA over 3 times but somehow security gives me a time to return as I’m told Old Age Pensions have changed fot today. I have wasted over a tank full of petrol riding back & forth & then came the Lockdown so I am not yet even registered as a SASSA member. I worked all my life since I turned 16 years old until 60&now no money to live on. I am single & battle along with help from friends. I really don’t know what to do anymore. If you wish to contact me my no is 0765269481. I feel like I have lost faith in SASSA as I won’t get back what I have lost in Old age grants already. I wish you all the best with the new system and trust you can help everyone. Have a great day. God bless Mrs. Valerie K. Steenkamp.

  28. I would appreciate if someone could contact me & help me get this process going & corrected ASAP as I do not own a home & have proof of my permanent residence. I think I have waited long enough.

  29. I want to know when is sassa going to announce that wen are they going to help people who do not have uif to start registering the R350 convid 19 distress grant

  30. i think it is not a good idea to pay on 4th of the month….
    the debit orders are going to be a problem …they supposed to come off on 1st..
    now everything must be changed at the bank…

  31. I would like to know those who give birth before this lockdown took place where can i go to apply for my baby’s social grant?

  32. I appreciate the Government the afford thank you South Africa much appreciated I’m waiting for the food package thanks
