South Africa Social Security Administration - Proof of Life

The following case study demonstrates the value of voice biometrics for verifying proof of life for millions of beneficiaries of South Africa’s social grant system, thereby enhancing the speed and accuracy of delivery of the funds and as a consequence significantly reducing fraud. AGNITIO recently teamed up with Net1 Universal Electronic Payment System (UEPS) Technologies (Net1) to deploy a biometrics-based Proof of Life authentication system for a government agency in South Africa.
