SASSA Reaches Agreement Over Deductions

SASSA and life assurance company, Lion of Africa, reach a settlement before an application by the agency was heard by the Constitutional Court

The South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) and life assurance company, Lion of Africa, have reached a settlement before an application by the agency was heard by the Constitutional Court.

The agreement‚ which was made an order of the court‚ allows the agency to stop funeral policy deductions from three types of children’s grants.

The judgment means that there would be no new deductions from the three forms of children’s grants between January and May‚ when new regulations from the minister disallowing deductions from children’s grants take effect.
