Recommendations from YEI members


Bidvest Car Rental


It was the first time we’ve used the services of Bidvest Car Rental. I’m subscribed to You’ve Earned It and was notified through them that Bidvest offers a Pensioner’s Discount which is highly appreciated especially at this time of our lives. It was a pleasure dealing with your staff at the Phalaborwa Airport branch and we will most definitely make use of your services again. Thank you for considering the pensioners!  B. Turnbull

SASSA Grant Payment Disruption Resolved


Some SASSA beneficiaries encountered problems yesterday when trying to withdraw their grants at the post office and through other payment channels. This was due to a network problem on the side of the South African Post Office (SAPO) grant payment system.  The grant money has been reversed into the affected beneficiaries’ accounts and is now available for withdrawal. SASSA is working together with all relevant stakeholders on its value chain to avoid a repeat of this situation in future.  “We would like to sincerely apologise to the affected beneficiaries and their families for yesterday’s disruption in grant payments. SASSA and the Post Office are working on preventative measures to ensure that such a disruption does not occur in future- Abraham Mahlangu SASSA Acting CEO said.  Beneficiaries are requested to direct further queries to the SASSA toll-free number (0800 60 10 11).
