The lapse of a grant by the South African Social Security Agency (SASSA)  could mean that you are unable to access crucial financial support from the government. 
SASSA provides a number of social support grants to people living in South Africa. These grants include the older persons grant, child support grant, foster child grant, war veterans grant and the disability grant. A lapse could mean that you no longer have access to vital relief from SASSA. 
Different SASSA grants could lapse for a number of different reasons depending on the circumstances around the grant. For example, once a child turns 18 years old, their parent or guardian will no longer qualify to receive a child support grant from SASSA. A disability grant can also lapse if the grant recipient’s period for temporary disability expires.  
These are the reasons which could cause a SASSA grant to lapse

If the grant recipient has died 
If the grant recipient has been admitted to a state care institution 
If the temporary disability period has expired
If the grant recipient is no longer a refugee
If a child turns 18 years old (child support grant)
If you do not claim the grant for more than 90 days 
If the grant recipient is out of South Africa for longer than 90 days
