More about this grant
Child Support Grant Top Up: Where an orphan (child whose parents are both deceased) is cared for by a family member, that family member may qualify for an extended child support grant (CSG top up). This will entail an additional amount added to the child support grant for the care giver.
“Remember the CSG top up is not a new grant therefore the criteria is the same as the CSG. The only addition is that the child must be an orphan and an affidavit with such information must be provided. There is no new criteria” Social Development Media Briefing.
