NGO Welcomes Increase on Pension With Caution

Social grant recipients to get an extra R10 a month from the government in an unexpected half-year grant increase

From this month, more than four million social grant recipients get an extra R10 a month from the government in an unexpected half-year grant increase.
 
Human rights organisation the Black Sash welcomes the increases but says there is still a long way to go in improving social assistance.
 
The organisation’s national advocacy manager, Elroy Paulus, points out that, “Though these increases, in terms of purchasing power of the beneficiaries, are small, we acknowledge that these are important decisions in times when there is unprecedented pressure on the fiscus.”
