Pensioner And Social Grant Rebates On City Of Cape Town Rate Payments

Category Home Owners

The City of Cape Town has encouraged residents who are dependent on pensions and social grants as an income to apply for a discount on their rate payments. Property owners with a monthly income of between R4 500 and R17 500 rand may also apply. 

However, residents will need to meet some criteria to qualify for the rebates

These include; employment status, whether they are a pensioner or receive a social grant, and whether they are a full time occupant of their home. The city has encouraged pensioners who are 60 years and older and who are already receiving these rebates to re-apply as their three-year cycle ended in June.
