Sonti, Ms NP to ask the Minister of Social Development
What is the total number of social grant recipients who received their grants after the scheduled date in (a) June, (b) July and (c) August 2018?
No social grant recipients received their social grants after the scheduled date in the months indicated. It should be noted that social grants are available from the first of each month, and are available for collections during that month. Apart from the beneficiaries who collect their social grants in cash at designated pay points, no beneficiary has a specific date on which to collect the social grant. Therefore, as long as the grant is collected in the month in which it is due, there is no delayed payment.
Approved by the Minister on
