Sassa Grant Payment Dates For 2023 

Knowing when grants will be paid can be extremely beneficial to grant beneficiaries. This is because it gives them a clear understanding of when they will receive their money and allows them to plan their budget effectively.

Careers Portal has already published all the Sassa grant payment dates for the 2023/2024 financial year.  This comes after the grant payment agency published the grant payment schedule with the official grant payment dates for 2023  on the official Sassa website. 

When Permanent Grants Are Paid

Sassa has a policy that requires grants to be distributed to beneficiaries during the first week of every month. These grants are normally paid from the second day of the month. However, this is not possible. 

Several circumstances can prevent Sassa from distributing grants on the second day of the month including if the second day of the month falls on a public holiday or a weekend.

If Sassa grants cannot be paid from the second day of the month, the social grant will be paid to beneficiaries on the following working day. 

Where Are Sassa Grants Paid? 

Beneficiaries of Sassa grants can collect their grant money in July at several participating retail outlets, at the post office and at mobile cash pay points. 

Retail outlets that pay Sassa grants include Checkers, Shoprite, Pick N Pay and Boxer Stores. Beneficiaries can collect their grants during the retail store’s operating hours after it has been paid by Sassa. 

Beneficiaries can choose to have their grant paid directly to their bank account. 

Many of beneficiaries believe that having their grant paid directly into their bank account is the best grant payment method. This is because they do not have to travel to collect their grant money, which saves them some money. It also means they don’t have to wait in long queues when collecting their money. 

There are different ways Sassa grant beneficiaries can change their grant payment method. 

Social Relief of Distress (SRD) Grant 

The Social Relief of Distress (SRD) grant is provided to unemployed people living in South Africa. This includes South African citizens, permanent residents, special permit holders and refugees. 

The SRD grant is commonly referred to as the R350 grant due to its monetary value or the amount of money received by beneficiaries of the grant monthly. 

Is The SRD Grant Permanent?

The South African government has extended the implementation of the relief mechanism and will continue paying the grant until March 2024. 

When Is The SRD Grant Paid 

The SRD grant is not a permanent grant and does not have a fixed payment date. SRD grant beneficiaries must wait for an SMS from Sassa informing them that their money is available for collection.
