 At the state of nations address President Cyril Ramaphosa announced the R350 special COVID-19 social relief of distress grant to be extended for another three months. The grants had been set to pause at the end of January. He also mentioned the extension until march 15 for Unemployment Insurance Fund’s Temporary Employee-Employer Scheme (TERS) only for business sectors unable to operate.
