As we approach the month of March 2023, many South Africans who rely on social grants are eager to know the payment dates for their respective grants. Social grants especially Child Support Grant, are an essential lifeline for millions of citizens who rely on them for their basic needs. In this blog post, we will provide you with the payment dates for some of the most common social grants in South Africa.
Firstly, the OLD AGE PENSION GRANT will be paid from THURSDAY, 2ND MARCH 2023, including any grants linked to these accounts. This grant is for those who have reached the age of 60 and above and are unable to work or have limited means of support. This grant provides much-needed financial assistance to senior citizens who are often at risk of poverty.
Secondly, DISABILITY GRANTS will be paid from FRIDAY, 3RD MARCH 2023, including any grants linked to these accounts. Disability grants are given to individuals who have a permanent disability and are unable to support themselves. These grants provide essential support to individuals who are often marginalized in society.
Lastly, CHILD SUPPORT GRANT and other grants will be paid from MONDAY, 6TH MARCH 2023. The Child Support Grant is for families with children under the age of 18 and who have limited means of support. This grant is an important tool in reducing child poverty and improving the well-being of vulnerable children.
Recipients of social grants should note that there is no need to rush to withdraw their grants on the first payment date. Once the payment is made, it will remain in the account until it is needed. It is essential to keep in mind that the South African government is highly committed to providing social grants to eligible citizens.
