Your NSFAS Wallet will allow you to withdraw cash and/or spend at any merchant registered by NSFAS. Allowance amounts are determined through consultation with institutions, communicated to NSFAS when you register.

This Wallet is free so students will not have to worry about additional costs making using your allowances accessible and cost effective.

The NSFAS Contact Centre is open from Monday to Friday, between 08:30 to 17:00.
