SASSA took to Twitter to note an increase in social grants, which beneficiaries are believed to have received as of April 2021.
The South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) took to Twitter on Tuesday, 6 April 2021, to note an increase in social grants. The increase came into effect this month, as beneficiaries are believed to have received slightly more funds in April 2021.
This month was significant too in another way, as it marked the first month that SASSA grant recipients received their grants without the additional incentive of the COVID-19 Social Relief of Distress (SRD) grant. The incentive ended in March 2021, following a three-month extension previously announced by President Cyril Ramaphosa.
Across most grants, there has been a R30 increase, which means that those who previously received R1 860 will now receive R1 890. Moreover, foster child grant recipients previously received R1 040, which has now been increased by R10 to R1 050.
