Child Support Grant beneficiaries will receive an extra R300 in May. From June to October, they will receive R500 each month. While other grant beneficiaries will receive an extra R250 per month for the next 6 months.

To reach the most vulnerable families in our country, we have decided on a temporary 6 months coronavirus grant. We will direct R50 billion towards relieving the plight of those who are most desperately affected by the coronavirus.

This means that Child Support Grant beneficiaries will receive an extra R300 in May. From June to October, they will receive R500 each month.

All other grant beneficiaries will receive an extra R250 per month for the next 6 months.

President Cyril Ramaphosa
