This has let so many people being confused on whether all of the grand will aslo be extended. Sassa has confirmed that the grant has came to an end. This money is being taken away at the time were we need it the most. People have lost their jobs. The top up grant really help. The top up grant was so helpful as people were able to buy enough groceries. With the top up being taken away, it opens room for people to start going to the loan sharks especially during this time.
All the top up amounts for the social grants (Old Age, Disability, War Veterans, Child Support, Foster Child and Care Dependency) have come to an end. The grant amounts as from November will revert to pre-covid amounts. There is no extension to the top up amounts. #SASSACARES
