We opened in November in order to give beneficiaries faster turnaround times for decisions that are in line with our evaluation of their financial eligibility, which calls for current SARS data.
To ensure that the required and current information was available during the application season, NSFAS waited for SARS to finish their tax period. This calculated timing supports the organization’s goal of simplifying decision-making procedures while enabling the smooth processing of an NSFAS online application.
Funding decisions for Sassa beneficiaries will be made right away. 35% of NSFAS beneficiaries in 2023 were Sassa beneficiaries.
