Regional Social Grant Offices

For some queries, you might be directed to a close regional office.

A list of SASSA regional offices appears on their website.

Enquiries via Email

The social security agency also has an appropriate email address, where you can contact them with any questions or complaints.

Use to send a direct email. Ensure you quote the correct reference number in future messages, if you have been provided with one.
