SASSA Warns Grant Beneficiaries Against Fake SRD Grant Messages
Todays latest SASSA News- Sassa is and has always been warning beneficiaries against scams and misleading reports on social media. Here are more details on the latest message floating around on a new Sassa grant.
The South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) has warned grant beneficiaries against a false message that has been circulating on social media.
The message appears to have been sent from Sassa and claims that Sassa has approved R700 monthly vouchers for all South African citizens. They also claimed that Special Relief of Dsitress (SRD) grant beneficiaries could benefit from the voucher.
Sassa recently confirmed on its social media platforms that the circulating message is fake and strongly warns social grant recipients not to share their personal details to people who represent themselves as Sassa officials.
Please note that the below advert is FAKE and does not come from Sassa. No additional grant type is offered apart from the ones announced by Sassa.
Sassa’s official mandate is to administer social grants to the poor and vulnerable throughout the country.
