South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) has launched a new online grant application portal for child support, and older persons and foster child grants.
In also an added advantage to minimize person to person contact for potential Covid-19 infection and standing on long queues for hours, the agency said applicants can do this at the comfort of their homes.
Just like any other application, the agency may require documents supporting a change of circumstances such as payment method, banking details and address.
The portal also provides updates on the status of the application.
“To access this service, applicants need to have an email address to sign up and to be able to log in for further services,” said SASSA.
Feedback will be sent via email or through an SMS for those who do not have email addresses.
The testing of the system is set to commence on Monday September 25.
