SASSA Online Application /Registration Child Support Grant and Foster Child Grant.

SASSA has recently launched a new online platform to help some categories of grants recipients to be able to apply for grants online.

Apart from its convenience, it helps SASSA to help manage overcrowding at their various offices across the country.

It has to be noted that, this process is solely online and the applicant must do everything online.

The following categories of grants can be registered online for the mean time :

  • Older Persons/ Pension Grant
  • Foster Child

The rest of the grants have to be applied manually at the various offices because of the nature of the grant. We hope in time, SASSA will extend the process to the other grants either partial or otherwise.

    I applied for child grant for 2 of my children online. one was successful but the other did not go through. A confirmation form came back for my daughter but had my sons name on it. this is clearly a mistake made by someone from sassa. I went to the sassa offices numerous times and they always off line. i stood for hours and many days and no one helped me. please help me to do my child grant as soon as possible. thank you.
