What is a social grant?

A social grant refers to grants paid by the government to South African citizens who are in need of assistance. In South Africa, social grants are administered by SASSA. Social grants are in place to help improve the standards of living in society and are given to people who are vulnerable to poverty and in need of state support.

These generally include older people, people with disabilities, and people with young children. All applicants for social grants must be South African citizens, permanent residents or refugees (official refugee status granted by the South African government must be provided) and candidates must be living in South Africa.

What is a means test?

Some social grants, such as old age pensions, social relief of distress grants, disability grants, care dependency grants and child support grants are subject to a “means test”. The aim of the means test is to determine if you’re eligible to apply for a social grant, SASSA will evaluate your income and assets in order to determine whether you qualify to apply.

The means test is simply a way of determining whether you qualify to receive a grant that’s meant for those who have insufficient means to support themselves.
