SOCIAL GRANT RECIPIENTS URGED TO USE ALTERNATIVE PAYMENT METHODS TO RECEIVE THEIR GRANTS
The South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) reminds social grant recipients that payments for July 2022 will commence on 04 July 2022 for Older Persons, followed by Disability Grants on the 5th, with all other grants being paid from 06 July 2022.
Clients who do not have PIN codes or who have forgotten their PINs, are encouraged to ensure that they reset their PIN codes at their nearest Post Office outlet. Those who have PIN codes and still remember them need not renew their PIN.
This will enable our clients to utilise all available channels to access their grants and give them the freedom to use their SASSA cards at all Points of Sales, such as ATMS and merchant stores ( for example Pick n Pay, Shoprite, Boxer or U-Save).
In addition, beneficiaries who receive their social grants at SASSA mobile pay points are also advised that they can access their grants through the above-mentioned payment infrastructures on the allocated days for the specific grants, or anytime thereafter, and do not have to wait for the cash payment dates.
Furthermore, beneficiaries are advised to be vigilant and cautious when using their PINs at all times, and not to share this with anybody, even close family members.
