As of my knowledge cutoff date in 2021, the South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) had not yet announced any changes to the payment date for the Child Support Grant in May 2023. However, it is important to note that SASSA may make changes to payment dates at any time, and it is important for grant recipients to stay informed about any changes that may affect their payments.
The Child Support Grant is a social assistance program in South Africa that provides financial support to parents or caregivers who are responsible for the care and upbringing of children. The grant is paid monthly, and the amount is determined by a means test based on the household income of the caregiver. As of my knowledge cutoff date in 2021, the maximum amount for the Child Support Grant was R460 per child per month.

SASSA typically publishes a payment schedule for social grants, including the Child Support Grant, at the beginning of each year. This schedule indicates the payment dates for each month, and recipients can use it to plan their expenses accordingly. However, there are occasions where changes in payment dates may occur, such as holidays or unforeseen circumstances.
If SASSA were to make changes to the payment date for the Child Support Grant in May 2023, they would likely announce it on their official website or through other official channels. In the event of a change in payment date, it is important for grant recipients to take note of the new date and plan their expenses accordingly.
It is also important to note that SASSA may occasionally make changes to the eligibility criteria or application process for social grants, including the Child Support Grant. For example, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, SASSA introduced a special relief grant for individuals who were not eligible for other social grants but were experiencing financial difficulties due to the pandemic. SASSA may also adjust the income thresholds or other eligibility criteria for social grants in response to changes in economic or social conditions.
If you are a recipient of the Child Support Grant or any other social grant in South Africa, it is important to stay informed about any changes that may affect your payments or eligibility. You can do this by regularly checking the SASSA website or contacting SASSA directly for more information.
In conclusion, as of my knowledge cutoff date in 2021, there had been no announcement from SASSA regarding changes in the payment date for the Child Support Grant in May 2023. However, it is important for grant recipients to stay informed about any changes that may affect their payments or eligibility, as SASSA may make changes to the payment schedule or eligibility criteria at any time.
