The South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) have revealed the dates for Sassa payment dates when social grant beneficiaries will receive their grants for the rest of 2023.These Sassa grant payment dates enable beneficiaries to effectively plan for when they will receive their money every month.
Sassa distributes grants in terms of the Social Assistance Act. Under the framework of the act, Sassa oversees the implementation of various social assistance programs. This includes the distribution of social grants to vulnerable people living in South Africa.
It is very efficient and easy for you if your Sassa grant can be paid into your bank account. Remember that the bank account must be in your name as Sassa cannot pay the grant into a bank account that is in someone else's name. It doesn't affect the payment dates of the Sassa grants if they are paid into your bank account instead of you collecting them from a Sassa office.
Several permanent grants are distributed by Sassa. These grants include the Older Persons pension grant, Disability grant, War Veterans grant, Care Dependency grant, Foster Child grant, Child Support grant, Child Support grant Top-Up and Grant-in-aid.
When Permanent Grants Are Paid
Sassa distributes permanent grants at the beginning of each month. These Sassa payments will commence on the second day of each month.
Its important to note that Sassa does not pay grants on public holidays or weekends. This essentially means that if the second day of the month is on a weekend or public holiday, the grant will be paid on the next weekday.
