Sassa Grant Payment Dates For May 2022


Sassa has recently announced the May grant payment dates. Below beneficiaries may check when they may collect their payments.


The South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) has recently revealed that approximately 46% of South Africans are beneficiaries of social grants provided by the agency.

During the first week of every month, Sassa pays permanent grants to qualifying recipients. These grants include the Disability grant, Older Persons’ grant, Care Dependency grant and Child Support grant.

The agency has also announced that permanent grants will begin to be distributed on the second day of every month. In the past, these grants were provided on the first Wednesday of a month.

The announcement means that beneficiaries will have access to their grants earlier every month.

Grant payments for the month of May would have been available on Monday 2 May 2022, however, the Post Office does not provide grants on public holidays. 

Beneficiaries may, therefore, collect their grants from Tuesday 3 May 2022.

Payment dates for May 2022

  • Tuesday 3 May: Older Persons Grant
  • Wednesday 4 May: Disability Grant
  • Thursday 5 May: Children’s Grants
