How to Collect Your Sassa Grant For November. Sassa (South African Social Security Agency) plays a crucial role in distributing social grants to eligible beneficiaries each month. These grants are essential for the well-being of more than 18 million South Africans.
The spectrum of permanent social grants offered by Sassa serves individuals with limited or no income, including the elderly, children, and those living with disabilities, effectively acting as a lifeline for vulnerable South Africans.
Types of Permanent Sassa Social Grants
Sassa permanent social grants encompass a range of options, such as the Older Person’s Grant, Child Support Grant, Disability Grant, War Veterans Grant, Foster Child Grant, and Grant in Aid. Given the diverse array of beneficiaries, understanding where and how to access these permanent Sassa grants can save both time and potential complications.
How to Collect Your Sassa Grant
Sassa’s permanent social grant beneficiaries usually need a bank account for receiving their grant payments. This commonly involves using a Sassa Gold card, which is widely accepted at major retail outlets like Pick n Pay, Shoprite, Boxer stores, Usave stores, and Checkers, or having a traditional bank account.
Additionally, Sassa has extended the validity of expiring Sassa cards until the end of 2023 to provide beneficiaries with peace of mind.
Alternative Grant Collection Methods
Sassa grant recipients also have the option of collecting their social grant payments through mobile cash pay points. It’s essential to note that this method allows beneficiaries to collect funds only during specific periods of the grant payment cycle.
Moreover, Sassa has introduced a new grant payment collection approach that enables beneficiaries to receive their grants without a Sassa Gold card. Those opting for this method are required to furnish their Identification Document, a valid cellphone number, and their Sassa Gold card pin.
