The South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) has begun distributing November 2023 grant payments. More than 18 million people are set to receive grant payments during the next two weeks.
Sassa disburses financial assistance every month to millions of individuals through the distribution of numerous grants. These grants enable the most vulnerable members of our society to purchase essential goods and access fundamental services every month.
Several different grants are distributed by Sassa every month including Older Persons Grants, Disability Grants, Child Support Grants, Foster Child Grants, War Veterans Grants, and Care Dependency Grants.
Sassa endeavours to pay grants from the second day of every new month. However, this is not always possible as the second day of the month may fall on a weekend or public holiday.
In November, grants will be paid from the second day of the month. Grant recipients who receive the children's support grants will have to wait for the second week for their grant payments as Sassa does not pay grants on weekends.

Where To Collect Your Grant
Sassa grants are available at selected retailers nationwide, ensuring easy access for grant recipients. Retail outlets such as Pick n Pay, Shoprite, Boxer stores, Usave stores, and Checkers all facilitate the distribution of social grants.
Mobile cash pay points are also accessible for grant beneficiaries, although this method has limited flexibility, with funds available for only a few hours during specific payment cycles.
