Petition for the Old Age grant to be increased

In most cases Old Age grant recipients are the only ones bringing in an income to their household but the Grant does not even meet the barest minimum of household needs!

Not to mention the high levels of unemployment which exacerbate the situation for the elderly.

Sign this petition calling on the national government to cushion the poor and vulnerable against inflationary pressures.

Our aim is to table the petition in Parliament so that it is prioritised as an important issue that is addressed in the President’s next State of the Nation Address (SONA) and in the Finance Minister’s Budget debate.

Sign the petition.
