SASSA warns the public against the below false information that does NOT come from SASSA.
Various cash pay-points were suspended this week due to the unrest in the country but SASSA has assured the general public that they will return to normal later in the week.
Beneficiaries are urged to remain calm and await communication as to when the payments at pay points will resume. It was then said, "you will be informed of the revised payment dates".
SASSA CEO, Totsie Memela, has urged beneficiaries to not panic in the meantime, as payments will be made as soon as the situation is resolved.
Memela said SASSA has the duty to ensure that all beneficiaries are safe from danger when withdrawing their funds.
Payments to bank accounts will continue and you can fetch grant money using other avenues. You can also still use your SASSA card to buy items and at ATMs.
