Social Relief of Distress Grant
The Social Relief of Distress Grant is administered by your local SASSA office (South African Social Security Agency).
The Social relief of distress grant is a temporary allocation of assistance in the form of goods, services or money for people who are in a major situation of distress unable to meet most basic needs.
Social Relief of Distress is given to recipients usually for a short time only (1 to 3 months). In some exceptional cases the grant may be extended for another 3 months.
