Sassa Grant Payments May Increase for July 2023

In February of this year, Finance Minister Enoch Godongwana announced an allocation of R30 billion for inflation-linked increases in permanent social grants, providing a boost to the Sassa social grants in South Africa. This news was welcomed by millions of grant beneficiaries across the country.

The first wave of increased grant payments was disbursed in April, bringing relief and assistance to many individuals and families who rely on these grants for their welfare and livelihoods. The additional funds helped alleviate some financial pressures and improve the well-being of the beneficiaries.

Looking ahead, the South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) has recently released the anticipated grant payment amounts for July 2023. These figures take into consideration the earlier inflation-linked adjustments, ensuring that the grants remain aligned with the rising costs of living.
