The following original documents must accompany an application for a foster child grant:

  • Your identity document and that of your spouse.
  • If married, your marriage certificate.
  • The original birth certificate of the foster child, and if it is a certified copy, it can’t be older than 3 months.
  • The Court Order placing the child in your foster care.
  • Confirmation of residential address (Municipal Account).
  • All of the above mentioned original documents must be taken with to the SASSA offices.

On arrival at the SASSA Offices ask the Security Officer for the below listed documents:

  1. A document that has to be completed by the foster child’s school / crèche, confirming school attendance by the foster child.
  2. An affidavit that has to be completed by the S.A.P.S.

Please Note: The foster child does not have to accompany you during the initial document collection and application, but has to on your return date specified by the officer that assisted you.

  1. After completing all of the relevant documentation take it back to the SASSA offices.
  2. A SASSA security officer will then issue you with a receipt, specifying a date on which you have to return back with the foster child.  Keep this receipt; it is your proof of application.

Note: You do not have to pay any money to apply, and you will be paid in lieu from the date of the legal placement of the child in your care by the Children’s Court



About Helouise Steenkamp

I'm a 45 plus, Devoted Wife and Mother. Adonai has blessed us with two Amazingly Wonderful Sons. We have had the privilege of being Place of Safety parents for 1 1/2 years and there after foster parents to a Darling Princess for 5 years. She was reconciled with her biological parents in Dec'14. Our hearts are still aching from the loss, but we know that as we trust Adonai with our salvation, so we can trust Him with her future. We welcomed our new 4 year old foster child on 05JUN'15.
