My Thai Love: Expert Advice on SASSA Benefits After Death

The Short Answer

If your spouse was receiving a SASSA old-age grant and passed away, you may be able to claim “unclaimed benefits” if no pension was withdrawn in the month of their death.

The Long Answer

Firstly, we offer our condolences for your loss. Dealing with the loss of a loved one is never easy, and we understand the importance of financial support during such times.

SASSA is immediately notified of a death through the Home Affairs population register. The grant is then canceled on the last day of the month in which the person passed away. Unfortunately, it is not possible to inherit a pension from a spouse.

If your late wife had already withdrawn her pension before her passing, there may not be any additional funds due. However, if no pension was withdrawn in the month she passed, you may be eligible for “unclaimed benefits” by submitting necessary documents, including the death certificate, ID cards, and funeral invoice/receipt.

In case you face any difficulties or need further guidance on your rights, we recommend reaching out to organizations like the Black Sash for assistance at their advice hotline number: 072 66 33 739.

Please remember that we are here to provide expert advice and support during this challenging time.
