There has been continued concern about the administration of social assistance grants to the poor, the needy and the disabled in South Africa. This led to the establishment of the South African Social Security Agency (SASSA). SASSA is responsible for the administration and payment of social assistance grants in terms of the Social Assistance Act 59 of 1992 (1992 Act) and its successor, the Social Security Act 13 of 2004 (2004 Act).
