SASSA Disability Grant Amount and Payment Methods

Starting October 1, 2023, the SASSA disability grant has been increased to R2,090 per month, offering essential financial assistance to eligible individuals. It’s important to note that the grant amount is calculated based on specific criteria. If your bank balance exceeds R1,080, your grant application might be declined for that month. To avoid this, ensure your balance remains below the threshold.

The grant can be received through various methods:

  • Cash Payment: Collect your grant at a designated pay point on a specified day.
  • Electronic Deposit: Opt for electronic deposit into your bank account, including Postbank (bank charges may apply).
  • State Institutions: Grants can also be received through institutions not funded by the State, such as homes for people with disabilities.

Dealing with Suspended or Lapsed Disability Grants

Your disability grant might be suspended or lapsed due to several reasons, including changes in your circumstances, SASSA reviews, failure to cooperate, or mistakes in the approval process. In such cases, it’s crucial to understand the circumstances leading to the suspension and address them accordingly.

Appeal Process for Denied Disability Grant Applications

In the unfortunate event of a denied disability grant application, SASSA will provide written notification detailing the rejection reasons. You have the opportunity to appeal this decision within 90 days of receiving the notification. Submit a written appeal to the Minister of Social Development, explaining your disagreement and seeking reconsideration.
