For many people in South Africa, SASSA payments are a crucial source of income and financial support. However, not everyone has access to a phone or a reliable phone number to receive notifications about their payments.

SASSA payments are an important source of support for many individuals and households in South Africa, particularly those who are vulnerable or facing financial hardship. The programme is designed to help ensure that all South Africans have access to a basic level of support and assistance, and to promote social and economic inclusion for all members of society.

However, not all South African citizens have access to a phone to receive their SASSA payments.

Fortunately, SASSA offers several options for receiving payments if you don't have a phone number. The options are as follows: 

Bank Account

One option is to receive payments through a bank account.

As a SASSA beneficiary, you can open a bank account and have your payments deposited directly into that account. This eliminates the need for a phone number, as the bank will provide notifications of the deposit and then you can access your funds through a debit card or other means.


Another option is to receive payments through a SASSA card. These cards can be obtained from SASSA offices and can be used to withdraw cash from ATMs or make purchases at participating retailers. 

While a phone number may not be necessary to receive SASSA payments, it is still advised that you provide any other valid contact information, such as your email address, to guarantee that you receive important notifications and updates about your payments through the SASSA Payment Notification System service.

This can help to prevent any delays or issues with payments, and can also help you stay informed about changes to the program or other important news.

By using these alternative methods, you can ensure that you receive the financial support you need, without having to rely on a phone or other technology.
