In general, this support will stop being paid when the child turns 18 or stops attending school, if the parent or child dies, if the parent loses custody of the child, if the child begins to earn income above the qualifying amount for this program, change country if there is no cooperation with the reviews or fraud is identified in the application process.

If you have all the requested documents, completing the form for submission to this program should take an average of up to 2 hours. It is always recommended to call a SASSA office first to confirm you have all required documents. You will start receiving payments within 3 months of enrolling. Payments will be made retroactively from the date you requested this assistance.

When evaluating a child’s application for this project, the income of their adoptive parents will not be considered. In fact, the child’s income will be factored into the calculation of child support and other financial aid the child may receive. To be eligible for this program, the child’s total monthly income must be less than twice the monthly amount paid under the Foster Child Grant. Currently, the value of this aid is R1,070. Thus, a child must have an income of up to R2,140 to be considered eligible.
