Early payments

The South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) has announced that it will start social grant payments for December on Tuesday November 28.

Funds will become available for collection at ATMs and all other payment channels from this date. However, beneficiaries in the Western Cape must note that payment at Sassa pay points will start on December 1.

The actual payment dates for pay points are printed on the receipts beneficiaries received with their November payment.

Funds will be available for collection at ATMs and stores until Friday December 22.

The last date of payments at Sassa cash pay points will be Friday December 15.

Social grant beneficiaries are reminded to keep their Sassa payment cards and PINs safe and not to share them with anyone.

They should also take note that the expiry date of their cards has been extended beyond December 2017 and the cards don’t need to be replaced this year.
