Sassa pays out various social grants in the first week of every month. As the month of May draws near, social grants will be available for beneficiaries to collect at the selected paypoints.
The government financially supports a great number of households as millions of individuals in South Africa rely on a social grant for their livelihood.
According to the South African Social Security Agency (Sassa), social grants ensure that vulnerable individuals access basic goods and services.
As per the Sassa payment schedule, social grants are paid out in the first week of every month, but it is important that grant recipients know when their monies will be available for withdrawal beforehand.
Here’s The Sassa Grant Payment Schedule for June 2023:
* Older persons- 02 June 2023
* Disability grants- 05 June 2023
* Children’s grants – 06 June 2023
Social Relief of Distress (SRD) grant recipients don’t have a specific payment schedule for when they can withdraw their monies and they have been advised to wait for an SMS notifying them of their payment date before attempting to withdraw their funds from merchants or bank ATMs.
Social grants are no longer collected at the Agency’s offices and Post Office, but grant holders may withdraw funds at selected retail stores, such as Shoprite, Checkers, U-save, Pick ‘n Pay, and Boxer as well as ATMs.
Grant beneficiaries also have the option of using their bank accounts for their Sassa monthly payments.
Sassa has mentioned that beneficiaries don’t need to fetch their Sassa grant payments on that specific day as once the money is in the account, it will remain there until it is needed.
Here’s How You May Collect Your SRD Grant Without A Sassa Card:
Social grant beneficiaries may collect their grant funds at pay points without using a Sassa card.
It is important that beneficiaries use their correct details when applying for their SRD grant as the One Time Pin will be sent to the registered cellphone number on the system.
When going to make a withdrawal, beneficiaries are required to also bring along their ID to the payment point at the retail store.
