CONDITIONS for Pensioners between ages 60 and 69
Pensioners must be 60 years or older, and must own and personally occupy the property, the value of which must not exceed R2,500,000.
• Pensioners dependent on a National Security Grant qualify for 100% rebate on successful application.
• Pensioners who are not on a National Security Grant, but whose gross monthly income falls below R10,545 qualify for 100% rebate on successful application.
