SASSA South African Social Security Agency 2023-2024

SASSA South African Social Security Agency 2023-2024

SASSA- South African Social Security Agency is a national agency of the government created in April 2005 in order to distribute social grants on behalf of the Department of Social Development. The vision of the South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) is to be a leader in the delivery of social security services. The mission of the Agency is to administer social security services to eligible children, older persons and people with disabilities.

Social awards are set up to help improve ways of life in the public eye and are given to individuals who are powerless against neediness and need the state to uphold. These for the most part incorporate more seasoned individuals, individuals with handicaps, and individuals with small kids. All candidates for social awards should be South African residents, perpetual occupants or outcasts (official displaced person status conceded by the South African government should be given) and applicants should be living in South Africa.
