The applicant will be paid for each month as long as they still meet the qualification criteria. Each month the application will be verified to ensure that the applicant still qualifies for that particular month.

Once applications are approved, SASSA will request confirmation of bank account though a secure site – this will also be done electronically. Any applicant has the right to request confirmation that this request is from SASSA to protect themselves.

The turnaround time of payment after the application has been approved is up to 7 days. SASSA has however emphasised that there is no set payment date for the grant.
