SASSA July 2020 Payment. How Much To Expect

The global pandemic has disrupted almost everything not leaving grants paid in this country.

Earlier after reported cases of the virus, government announced measures to help reduce the spread of the virus. One major of such measures was the nationwide lockdown and as such companies had to close and more and more people lost their main source of livelihood, thus their jobs.

Government made plans to help cushion most vulnerable by increasing the SASSA grants already being paid. He also added special social relief of distress grant to cater for people who do not have any form of income as a result of the pandemic.

May 2020 Grant Payments

The child grant was increased by R300 rands per each child in May (paid once) and a such the following can be deduced:

  • One Child 440+300 =740
  • Two children > 2(440)+2(300) =
  • Three Children > 3(440)+3(300) =


Other Grants were increased by R250 each

June 2020 Up to October 2020

But from June to October, the formula is different

Child grant:
The increment of R500 is per caregiver. So in this case, it does not matter how many kids under a caregiver, the amount remains the same.

  • One Child > 440 +500 = 940
  • Two Children > 2(440) +500
  • Three Children > 3(440)+500
  • Etc

Other grants beneficiaries will receive R250 each increase.
