How to Collect Your Grant on Payment Date?

The collection of your grant payment depends on the payment method you selected while applying for the SASSA grant. SASSA provides you with multiple ways to collect your grant payment with ease.

Initially, the payments were paid at the Post Office, but then later, SASSA introduced other ways to collect your payment because there were always long queues in post offices, and beneficiaries sometimes even needed to wait for a full day to receive their payments.

Currently, SASSA provides the following methods to collect your payments:

Via Bank Account:

This is one of the convenient ways to receive your payment. If you selected “Bank Account” as your payment method, then you don’t need to go anywhere or wait to collect your payment. The grant payment is automatically deposited to your account on the payment date.

Once the grant is deposited to your account, you can withdraw it at any nearest ATM branch or by directly visiting your bank.

Via SASSA Card:

The other option to collect your SASSA grant is via a SASSA card. If you have the SASSA card and selected it as your payment method, then the grant money will be deposited to your account on the payment date, and you can withdraw it at any ATM or merchant.

Via SASSA Partnered Merchants & PayPoints:

SASSA also provides you with a way to collect your grant payments from their partnered merchants, such as Shoprite, Boxer, Pick n Pay, and Spar. If you have selected any merchant as your payment method, then you can visit that merchant on the payment date and collect your grant from it.

Via Post Office:

If you selected your payment method as Post Office, then you will need to visit the Post Office branch to collect your grant on the payment date. Please keep in mind that the post office may have long queues, so try to go early in the morning to avoid long waiting times.

Note: SRD grant recipients can’t receive their grant from the post office. They must select any other payment method to collect their grants.

What Can Cause Changes to SASSA Payment Dates?

SASSA always tries to make payments on time, but some factors can cause delays in payment dates. Please keep in mind that delays rarely happen, but if they occur, the SASSA informs beneficiaries in advance about the adjusted payment dates.

The following factors can influence changes in SASSA payment dates:

  • Public Holidays & Weekends: SASSA plans the payment dates one year ahead and considers all public holidays and weekends while planning the dates. But still, if they notice any public holiday or weekend on the exact payment date after announcing the dates, they simultaneously inform the beneficiaries and adjust the date to one day earlier or later.
  • Unplanned Incidents: If any unexpected event occurs at the payment dates, such as a natural disaster or any technical problem in the SASSA system, then SASSA may need to reschedule the affected payment dates.
  • Changes in Administration: SASSA might also need to change payment dates if any internal updates are going on such as they are planning to improve the grant collection process or application eligibility criteria. If any changes occur in payment dates due to administrative changes, SASSA will inform the beneficiaries promptly.

Conclusion

In conclusion, SASSA grant recipients will begin receiving payments for Old Age, Disability, Child Support, and other grants starting June 4th, 2024. Whether you are collecting via bank accounts, SASSA cards, merchants, or post offices, you must understand the process for smooth transactions. While occasional adjustments may occur due to holidays or unforeseen circumstances, SASSA remains committed to keeping beneficiaries informed. Keep yourself updated to make the most of your grants.
