ha­ve p­roof that they ha­ve ap­p­lied to Ho­me Af­fairs for an ID do­cu­ment. T­his should be ta­ken to the SASSA of­fi­ce, and SASSA will then ge­ne­ra­te a tem­po­ra­ry ID num­ber which will be va­lid for three mont­hs.

The ap­pli­cant then has access to the old age grant for tho­se three mont­hs. It is ho­ped that by then their for­mal do­cu­men­ta­ti­on from Ho­me Af­fairs will ha­ve been re­cei­ved, and they can ap­ply for the old age grant in the nor­mal way.

E­ver­yo­ne, es­pe­ci­al­ly tho­se in the farming com­mu­ni­ties, is as­ked to pass t­his information on to their em­ploy­ees, and a­nyo­ne el­se they know who are st­rug­gling to access their old age grant be­cau­se of lack of do­cu­men­ta­ti­on.

For cla­ri­ty and gui­dan­ce, SASSA cham­pi­on Jo­na­than Ta­ren­taal can be con­tacted on 044 923 8502 in the Graaff-reinet dis­trict or Cl­lr Rui­ters on 072 546 3409.
