The South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) wishes to inform all beneficiaries of social grants about mid-year grant increases which will be effected on 1 October 2015. This follows approval by both Ministers of Finance and Social Development to increase only the affected grants by R10 each.
The Ministerial Committee for the Review of the White Paper on Social Welfare (1997) has called for a standardised budget allocation across provinces to address poverty, basic humanneeds and the social development priorities of all people.
