Outstanding January 2024 Grant Payments

Sassa acknowledges the outstanding January 2024 grant payments, assuring beneficiaries that these will be addressed in the February 2024 payment cycle.

In January, over 150,000 beneficiaries out of the 19 million did not receive their grants. The non-payment was attributed to discrepancies in grant beneficiary details, including mismatched ID numbers with bank records, incorrect banking details, and changes in grant payment methods.
