On behalf of the Department of Social Development, the South African Social Services Agency (SASSA) is an organization that provides social subsidies to underprivileged South Africans. If you want to know if you can get your SASSA money back, see the answers below.
We have all the information you need if you are a beneficiary of an SASSA award and are wondering if you may have your SASSA payments reversed.
Unless there are individuals who haven’t yet withdrawn the money, it cannot be overturned if folks have already accessed their SASSA award payouts. That is simple for the system to recognize.
They can subsequently receive the funds that are awaiting them because they never expire.
Additionally, the Post Office has put in place a method to shorten the wait period for recipients of the R350 Social Relief of Distress Grant.
Sassa advises recipients, especially elderly, to avoid crowded areas on the first two days of the month and to refrain from withdrawing all of their money at once or all in one day.
This is so that they can be robbed during pay dates by con artists and crooks.
One of the conditions is that SASSA make sure the data used for grant payments is up to date and that only citizens who meet the standards are given grants.
During a Sassa routine verification of the beneficiaries’ personal details, all given information must be current and correct, failing which may result in the lapsing of the grant.
Sassa beneficiaries however have an opportunity to apply for the restoration of grants within 90 days from the date of them lapsing.
If a beneficiary does not apply for the restoration of the social grant within 90 days of suspension, it can be interpreted as being unclaimed and will lapse, thereafter, the beneficiary must make a new application.
To apply for the restoration of social grant, the application should include the reason for not responding to request for review or the intention to suspend and a completion of the administrative process that determines how the beneficiary managed financially during the suspension.

- Care dependency grant – R1890 per month
