How does the War Veteran’s Grant work?

The world lived through critical moments in the last century. Major armed conflicts took place on virtually every continent.

In some of these episodes, the South African government identified the need to send soldiers to join forces and defeat threats.

This occurred mainly in the Second World War (1939-1945) and the Korean War (1950-1953). Some of our fighters who served in these conflicts never returned home.

Others are alive and are part of memory, the world, and the country’s history. Despite the great test of bravery, some veteran soldiers are struggling financially today.

To thank them for their services, the government began granting lifetime pensions to them: the War Veteran’s Grant.

Annual readjustments

We know that inflation causes money to lose more and more of its value. Thus, the only way to guarantee the effectiveness of financial aid is to grant readjustments.

Thus, the value of the War Veteran’s Grant is updated annually. Below, see how much those registered in this program received in recent years each month!

  • 2018: R1,720;
  • 2020: R1,880;
  • 2021: R1,910;
  • 2023: R2,000.

Different ways to get your money

You can pocket your pension payments in a variety of ways. Electronic bank transfer, cash via SASSA office or through welfare institutions.

To avoid bank transaction fees, we recommend you receive the money in hand or look for banks that do not charge a transfer fee.
