How does the Grant-in-aid work?

Indeed, for many, the Disability Benefit, Veteran’s Benefit, or Old Age Pension Benefit is not enough. That’s because many of the beneficiaries need special care.

Others need full-time care and don’t have a family member to help them. In these cases, paying for support from a healthcare professional can be extremely expensive.

Especially for citizens who survive on federal pension income alone. Thinking about these cases, the federal government created the Grant-in-aid.

This is additional financial assistance for beneficiaries who, for health reasons, cannot take care of themselves. That way, they need to have someone around all day.

This aid is paid together with the pensions that the beneficiary already receives. The amount is R500 per month and can be paid indefinitely.

Registration “by proxy”

In fact, many of those who need subsidy assistance cannot go to a SASSA agency to apply for this pension.

Sensitive to this reality, the government allows the request for this aid to be made by someone other than the beneficiary.

To do this, it is enough for a family member or friend to attend a registration location.

The representative must present a letter and/or medical certificate stating that the beneficiary cannot attend the office.

Totally free service

You will not need to disburse any amount of money to apply for this benefit. Also, the federal government will not make any deductions from payments.

However, if you choose to receive your payment via wire transfer, you may incur a fee.

However, this is the sole responsibility of the bank or institution you have chosen to manage your money.
