Payment for February SASSA Grant Commences

In todays latest SASSA News – Beneficiaries of the Sassa social grant can rest easy today, since they will get their grant payments. There will be further award payments made on the dates below, as planned by the funding agency.

The Social Security Agency of South Africa (Sassa) has confirmed that the distribution of social payments will begin on time. Millions of South Africans count on these grants to make ends meet, so this news comes as welcome relief.

According to a social media post by the agency, the Older Persons Award will be distributed first on February 2, followed by the Disability Grant on Friday, February 3, and the remaining grant installments on Monday, February 6.

Please remind the intended recipients that they can access their social grants through a number of channels. With their Sassa Gold Card, they are able to make purchases at participating stores and withdraw cash from ATMs or the Post Bank. Boxer, Pick n’ Pay, Shoprite, Checkers, and Usave are the chosen stores.

Those who have been awarded a social grant should remember that once the funds have been transferred, they will sit in their bank account until they are withdrawn. This means the recipient does not have to make a withdrawal right away if doing so would cause undue hardship.

Moreover, Sassa has guaranteed that all grantees would be paid promptly if they are determined to be eligible.

To prevent any fraudulent activity, the agency has implemented precautions to keep the payment system safe.
