This article notes significant views from disability grant policy experts regarding the strategies adopted as mechanisms for disability grant disbursement. The discourse followed here critically evaluates the challenges and inputs pertaining to structures such the disability grant policy, associated frameworks, system errors and related inefficiencies as experienced by the South African Social Security Agency of the Pietermaritzburg. Social scientists in many fields observed strengths and weaknesses of disability grant instruments, the ineffectiveness in disbursement and skills development required to enhance efficient social security service delivery, enablement and involvement of partners in various organisations. Using a qualitative approach, this theoretical article contends that the disability grant policy executers plays a significant role in cooperating with disability grant policy-makers to deliver the disability grants to beneficiaries. Even though there are many role players at the social security agency multi-level governance with varying resource needs and attentiveness, however there are still gaps in the mechanisms adopted by the government to provide disability grants of beneficiaries in South Africa. On that account, it is critical for the South African government through SASSA agencies to observe and assess the effectiveness of mechanisms used to disburse disability grants to provide rigorousness in social systems for service delivery improvement.
