  • Married or living with a partner, or single and have dependants
  • Single military veterans or aged people without dependents also qualify
  • Monthly household income must not be more than R3 500 per month( if two people in your family earn  more than R3,500 per month you will not qualify)
  • A first-time government subsidy recipient
  • You have never owned property and neither has your partner
