SASSA says their capacity of staff at offices across the country will be increased this coming week.

Many people expressed disappointment about struggling or standing in long queues at SASSA offices to register themselves for the Covid-19 unemployment relief fund or child support grant applications.

Busisiwe Memela-Khambula, CEO of SASSA, says it is important to remember the money of the beneficiary gets paid into their bank account and not at the SASSA offices.

“Like everywhere else in the country, we have been allowed to bring only a third of our staff into our branches, which therefore means that a limited number of people can be taken into the branch. Hence, we’ve decided that we are going to call all our staff back, others will work inside the office or others will work outside this coming week so that they can manage the queues,” says Memela-Khambula.
