To get through your elderly years, you can seek a grant. Awarded to anyone over 60, the older person’s award is available. The old age pension was the original name for this allowance.

How can you tell whether you qualify?

Candidates must fulfill the following requirements:

  1. It is necessary to be a citizen of South Africa, a refugee, or a permanent resident.

  2. The petitioner and the child must both be citizens of South Africa.

  3. Must be 60 years or older.

  4. The applicant cannot be receiving any other social assistance.

  5. The means test must be passed by both the candidate and his or her spouse.

  6. The applicant cannot reside or receive care in a state facility.

  7. The applicant must provide an identity document with a 13-digit barcode.

How much will you be paid?

You will be paid a maximum of R1 980 per month. If you are over the age of 75, you will receive R2 000.

How are you going to get paid?

One of the following methods is how the South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) will pay you for the grant:

Cash deposited into your bank or Postbank account electronically at a certain pay point on a specific day (the bank may charge you for the service) (e.g. old age home).
Note: If you are unable to collect the funds personally, you may designate a procurator or provide someone power of attorney to do so at the SASSA office.

What date will your grant be assessed?

SASSA will make the final decision about the grant review. Your disclosed income from the time you applied for the grant will be the basis for this decision. The review date or the day the life certificate (proof that you are still alive) is required will be sent to you three months in advance. You must annually complete a life certificate at the SASSA offices if you receive your funds from a bank, an institution, or a procurator.

When is your grant revocable?

In the event of any of the following, your grant could be revoked:

  1. if you refuse to comply when your grant is evaluated

  2. when you conduct fraud or make false statements about yourself

  3. or if there was an error when your grant was authorized.
