The problems became even worse when the Social Department requires grant beneficiaries to reapply for grant reconsideration in April. Even though the department has tried to resolve issues but there are still several grant beneficiaries it owes the R350 since 2021.
Some of the people to whom the department owes the money are up to eight months, worth of outstanding grant payments. This would amount to R2800, which grants beneficiaries desperately need.
Many of these grant beneficiaries were initially declined from receiving the grant. They submitted their grant appeal and became successful. Even though they were approved and the system shows that they are approved, no payment due to them has been done by SASSA. They have been sent from pillar to post without any assistance.
They have now pinned their hopes on the People's Campaign, #PayTheGrants as their last hope to get what is due to them.
We support the #paythegrants and we hope the people will be finally paid by the Social Department.
