APPLYING FOR A SASSA GRANT IN PERSON

To apply in person, you will need to visit a SASSA office close to you. If you are unable to visit the SASSA office yourself, due to being too sick, old or disabled, you may have a procurator (family member or friend) apply for you. They should bring a letter from you authorizing the application.

The application form is available at the SASSA office and must be completed in the presence of a SASSA officer. A SASSA officer will be able to assist you or your appointed person, to complete the application form if you or they are unable to do so.
