How are SASSA Payment Dates Determined?
SASSA payment dates are determined based on various factors, including the type of grant, the payment method, and the date the application was approved.
For example, the Older Persons Grant, Disability Grant, and Child Support Grant payments are usually made on the first day of each month, while the Foster Child Grant and Care Dependency Grant payments are made on the 15th of each month. The payment date for the Social Relief of Distress (SRD) grant is on the 15th of every month.
The SASSA payments schedule is subject to change, and beneficiaries are advised to check with their local SASSA office or visit the SASSA website for the latest payment dates. The payment method may also affect the payment date. For example, bank transfers may take longer to process, and this may affect the payment date for beneficiaries who have chosen this payment method.
In addition, SASSA may also adjust payment dates to avoid public holidays or weekends, ensuring that beneficiaries receive their payments promptly. SASSA strives to ensure that grant payments are made on time and to the correct beneficiaries.
How are SASSA Grant Payments Made?
SASSA (South African Social Security Agency) grant payments are made via various methods, including bank transfer, the SASSA card, and cash payments at designated pay points.
SASSA beneficiaries who have a bank account can choose to receive their grant payments via bank transfer. The payment is usually made on the first day of the month for most grants.
Beneficiaries who do not have a bank account can receive their grant payments via the SASSA card. The SASSA card is a special debit card issued by SASSA, which can be used to withdraw cash at ATMs or pay for goods and services at merchants that accept Mastercard. The payment is usually made on the first day of the month for most grants.
SASSA beneficiaries who are unable to access the above payment methods can receive their grant payments in cash at designated pay points. T
These pay points are usually located in rural areas or areas where banking facilities are not available. The payment date for the Social Relief of Distress (SRD) grant is on the 15th of every month, and the payment is made via cash at designated pay points.
It’s important to note that the payment method may affect the payment date, and beneficiaries are advised to check with their local SASSA office or visit the SASSA website for the latest payment dates and methods.
