Important Questions About SASSA:
1. What is SASSA? SASSA is a government agency responsible for managing social grants, including disability and older persons grants. It collaborates with departments such as the Department of Social Development (DSD).
2. Where Can I Withdraw or Collect My SASSA Grant? SASSA grants can be received through an official SASSA card or directly to a bank account. Applications for account payments are done via the official SASSA website. Additionally, grants can be collected at selected stores, SASSA offices, and various retail outlets like Post Offices, Boxer, Checkers, Spar, Shoprite, or PnP.
3. How Can I Confirm if a Store Can Withdraw My SASSA Funds? Not all stores can facilitate SASSA grant withdrawals. To verify, call the store manager beforehand and inquire if they can assist in the collection of your SASSA grant.
4. What Documents Do I Need to Collect My SASSA Grant? For store withdrawals, bring your identity document and the cellphone number used for registration (for confirmation SMS).
5. How Do I Know If SASSA Is Offline? If uncertain about SASSA’s online status, contact the store or office where you plan to collect your grant.
6. Can’t Collect Grants Yourself? If you cannot collect the grant yourself, you can appoint a procurator to handle it on your behalf, as per SASSA’s official Twitter account.
7. Can Someone Keep My SASSA Card? No, your SASSA card is personal property, akin to an Identity Document, and should not be held by anyone else. Report any issues with your SASSA card to the SASSA Grant and Fraud Hotline at 0800601011.
8. What Should I Do If I Suspect SASSA Fraud? If you suspect any form of SASSA fraud, such as unauthorized grant claims, you can report it anonymously to the same hotline mentioned above.
