SASSA Disability Grant June 2024: Exact Payment Date Available Now

Living with a disability can be challenging, especially when it affects your ability to work and earn a living. Fortunately, the South African government provides the SASSA Disability Grant to offer financial help to individuals who are physically or mentally unable to work for an extended period.

The grant has two parts: temporary and permanent. The Permanent Disability Grant is available for individuals whose disability is expected to continue for more than a year. It’s important to note that a “permanent” grant does not mean lifelong support but indicates that the disability will last for longer than 12 months.

On the other hand, the Temporary Disability Grant is designed for those whose disability is expected to last between six and 12 months. It provides short-term financial assistance during the recovery or adjustment period.

The disability grant is provided monthly to eligible individuals to help support themselves. For June 2024, the grant is scheduled to be distributed on the 5th of June.

Disability Grant Amount and Payment Methods

The maximum amount you can receive through the SASSA Disability Grant is R2,180 per month. This sum is meant to help cover the basic living expenses of those who need it most. There are several ways you can receive your grant:

  • Cash Payments: You can collect cash at specific pay points on designated days.
  • Bank Deposits: The grant can be deposited directly into your bank account, including Postbank accounts.
  • Direct Payments to Institutions: For individuals living in private care facilities that are not funded by the state, the grant can be paid directly to these institutions. If the recipient moves into a state-funded care facility, their grant is reduced to 25% of the full amount starting from the fourth month. This reduced amount continues until they leave the facility, after which the full grant amount is restored immediately.
