When the announcement to extend the Grant was made, it was extended for a period that would end in March 2022, leaving millions of people with out any Grant income after that date.
However the government is currently deciding whether or not they should include a permanent basic income Grant.
This this basic income grant will be for individuals who are currently unemployed. If the basic income Grant is not approved soon then the social relief Grant might be extended for and even longer period of time.
Most individuals just have three payments left from their basic income grants. While some individuals have not received it for longer periods, however these back payments will be made to those individuals who have not received their previous payments.
