Here's How SASSA Gold Card Carriers Can Access Their SRD Grant Payments

Instead of visiting the Post Office, Sassa is calling on all Gold Card Carrying clients to access their 350 SRD grant payouts in the following way.


Clients who receive their special COVID-19 SRD grant through their SASSA gold cards have been advised to access their grants at participating merchants or bank ATMs.

Furthermore, it is well worth noting that this method of accessing the 350 SRD grant payment is reserved for approved unemployed caregivers with ID documents.

These clients are also advised not to collect their payments at the Post Office but to visit participating merchants or bank ATMs instead. They can also use the card to pay for purchases and not necessarily only to withdraw cash

Since its reintroduction back in early August, Sassa has received more than 14 million Covid-19 SRD grant applications, with over 8.3 million applications approved and almost 6 billion payments processed last month.

Listed below are the payment dates for October, according to the last three digits of beneficiaries' ID numbers:

  • Monday 084 & 089
  • Tues 080 & 085
  • Wed 081 & 086
  • Thurs 082 & 087
  • Fri 083 & 088

These dates apply to the payout method at the post office. Beneficiaries will be able to collect their grants as soon as Sassa confirms payment.
