The South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) is in charge of administrating and paying thousands of South Africans their rightful social grants.
Regional offices can be found in every province, and there’s a national office located in Pretoria that functions as the hub of grant payments and administration.
But where can you connect about social grants online?
Here are some of the most important links for social grant recipients, including the website and social media channels like Facebook.
If you’re a social grant recipient, you will find a lot of useful information and links posted on the official SASSA website.
The main website contains most of what you want to know as a grant recipient (or applicant). Links on each of the available social grants and their criteria can be found here, as well as any announcements or news from the SASSA team.

If you’re looking for the online portal that governs the R350-SRD grant, you’ll find it at this page. Note that the page will require you to enter your phone number and ID, to verify that you can access the SASSA system.
The social grant agency is also available through social media channels, if you want to catch important SASSA news updates – or have a question that you want to ask.
If you have a specific question for the social grant team, it might be more effective to email them at GrantEnquiries@sassa.gov.za.
There’s more to be found at the social grant agency’s website, including where to find advertised job vacancies.
All jobs and vacant positions for the social grant agency is advertised at the link. You’ll find job requirements and other details listed on each individual job listing.
