The maximum value of the Disability Grant is R1,780 per month from April 2019. In order to qualify for this grant you must be between the age of 18 and 59 years. You must be found medically unfit for work by a medical officer because of a mental or physical disability.
The grant is available on a permanent or temporary basis for between six and twelve months.

Your permanent grant can be reviewed in order to assess whether you are in fact still disabled.
