At what age does SASSA child grant end?

The South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) Child Support Grant may stop Based on the following :

  1. Child’s Death:
    • If the child for whom the Child Support Grant is received passes away, it is logical that the grant payments would cease. Social grants are typically provided to support the well-being of the child, and the unfortunate event of the child’s death would result in the discontinuation of the grant.
  2. Child’s 18th Birthday:
    • Grant payments may also cease at the end of the month in which the child turns 18. Social grants often have age eligibility criteria, and once the child reaches the age of 18, they may no longer qualify for the Child Support Grant.
  3. Non-Claim for 3 Consecutive Months:
    • If the caregiver fails to claim the Child Support Grant for three consecutive months, it could result in the suspension or termination of the grant. Regular claiming and adherence to the application and reporting procedures are generally required to continue receiving social grants.

To ensure accurate and up-to-date information specific to your situation, it is recommended to contact SASSA directly through their official channels, including their website, local offices, or helpline. This way, you can receive personalized guidance based on the most current policies and regulations.
