Check SASSA Child Support Grant Status Online

The SASSA Child Support Grant aims to assist lower-income households in covering the basic needs of their children. It is not intended to replace other sources of income but rather to bridge the gap in the household’s cost of living. This social support is similar to the SASSA Foster Child Grant, and please note that only one application will be accepted at a time for either of these grants.

If you are the primary caregiver of a child (whether a parent, grandparent, or anyone primarily responsible for the child’s care), you can conveniently Check SASSA Child Support Grant Status Online. Here is how you can do it properly.
