Social Assistance Act and Efficient Payment
Sassa operates under the framework of the Social Assistance Act, overseeing the implementation of various social assistance programs. These programs, including the distribution of social grants, play a crucial role in supporting vulnerable individuals in South Africa.
To ensure efficiency, beneficiaries are encouraged to have their Sassa grant payments deposited directly into their bank accounts. It’s essential to note that the bank account must be in the recipient’s name, as Sassa cannot process payments into an account registered under someone else’s name.
