May 2024 Sassa Grant Amounts Revealed



Millions of people rely on social grants monthly to purchase basic goods and access services monthly. Here's how much grant beneficiaries will receive in May 2024. 



The South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) disburses essential financial aid to millions of South Africans through various social grants. These grants assist individuals with disabilities, older persons, children, and others facing financial hardship.

Grants distributed by Sassa include the Older Persons pension grant, Disability grant, War Veterans grant, Care Dependency grant, Foster Child grant, Child Support grant, Child Support grant Top-Up and Grant-in-aid.

No Change in Grant Amounts for May

Beneficiaries who received a grant increase in April 2024 can expect the same amount in May 2024. There will be a further increase for some grants in October 2024.

  • Older Persons Grant: R2,180 (R2,180 + R20 for those over 75)
  • War Veterans Grant: R2,180 + R20
  • Disability Grant: R2,180
  • Care Dependency Grant: R2,180
  • Foster Child Grant: R1,180
  • Child Support Grant: R530
  • Child Support Grant (Top-Up): R530 + R260
  • Grant-in-Aid: R530

When to Expect Your May 2024 Grant Payment

Sassa typically initiates grant payments on the second working day of each month. In May 2024, this falls on:

  • Friday, May 3rd: Older Persons Grant
  • Monday, May 6th: Disability Grant
  • Tuesday, May 7th: Children's Grants (Child Support Grant and Foster Child Grant)

While Sassa endeavours to pay social grants on consecutive days, it is not always possible due to the agency's grant payment policies. The current payment policy means that social grants are not made on public holidays or weekends. This will impact grant payment in May 2024 and beneficiaries of the disability grants and children's grants will have to wait a little bit longer before they receive their money.
