The organization established this award to prevent situations where parents are compelled to place their kids in foster care in order to receive financial assistance. The money is meant to supplement the caregiver-child support grant in the amount currently offered.

Sassa has further indicated that in order for recipients of social grants to be eligible for the Extended Child Support grant, the caregiver must present both biological parents’ death certificates.

An affidavit stating that the other parent’s whereabouts are unknown and that he or she is not involved in raising the child may also be submitted in lieu of the primary parent’s death certificate.

The extended child support award is now worth R720, and it can be disbursed in cash at pay points on specific days or immediately into an applicant’s or beneficiary’s bank account.

To be eligible, children must be less than 18 and meet the requirements. Depending on the circumstances, they may currently be living in South Africa with foster families or with a disability. Only the child support grant benefits 11 million people.

Nearly 500,000 children benefit from foster care grants, and 130,000 children benefit from the care dependency grant. The South African Constitution guarantees the right to social protection. When a kid’s primary carers are struggling financially, the law mandates the government to help the child directly.
