The South Africa Social Security Agency (SASSA)normally calls for applications. The agency has the mandate to ensure the provision of comprehensive social security services against vulnerability and poverty within the constitutional and legislative framework.
To apply for a social security service, the following is required;
- SA ID number with name and last name as indicated on ID
- Sex of individual
- Disability status
- Banking details
- Contact details
- Evidence of being a South African resident
Getting applications forms are possible electronically and this can be done by sending a message to 0600 123 456 through WhatsApp and choosing the Sassa choice. One other way of going ahead with your application is to send an email to the address: SRD@sassa.gov.za.
The government is also exploring other avenues which will incorporate an SMS stage and a help desk contact details and an online application system.
Additionally, the agency is also doing its best not to leave behind people who in one way or the other do not have banking details.
