SASSA Disability Grants are available for eligible individuals who have a disability and are unable to work, or if you’re temporarily unable to work for longer than 6 months due to a physical or mental disability.

The SASSA disability grant can be paid as a lump sum or monthly installments.

If you have a disability, you can apply for a disability grant at your nearest SASSA office. A family member or friend can fill in the forms on your behalf if you’re too old or sick to travel to an office near you.
