SASSA card

 

The South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) wishes to inform all social grant beneficiaries about the payment cycle for December 2017.

 

Social grant payments for December will commence on 28 November 2017.

Funds will become available for collection at ATMs and all other payment channels from 28 November 2017. Payment at SASSA pay points will start on 28 November 2017, except for the points in Western Cape, which commence on 1 December 2017. The actual payment dates for pay points are printed on the receipts beneficiaries received with their during November payment. 

Funds will be available for collection at ATMs and stores until 22 December.  

The last date of payments at SASSA cash pay points will be the 15 December 2017.

Social grant beneficiaries are reminded to keep their SASSA payment cards and PINs safe and not to share them with anyone. They should also take note that the expiry date of their cards has been extended beyond December 2017 and the cards don’t need to be replaced this year.

The Minister and Deputy Minister of Social Development wishes all social grant beneficiaries and their families a peaceful festive season and a prosperous New Year.

      Dear Helena

      Sorry to hear of your experience. Unfortunately, you will need to pursue the SASSA route if you want to apply for a social grant for you and your husband. Is there perhaps another SASSA you can go to – in another town, close-by? Might be worth finding out.

      Kind regards
