Where to Collect Your SASSA Grant Payment For August 2022?
Around 18 million individuals living in South Africa benefit from permanent grants distributed by the South African Social Security Agency (Sassa). These grants are distributed monthly during the first week of every new month.
The South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) announced that permanent grants will begin to be distributed on the second day of every new month. This will allow the 18 million individuals who benefit from social security grants to access their money earlier.
SASSA explained that if the second day of the month falls on a weekend or public holiday, the grant will be distributed on the following working day. However, the second day of August occurs during the week.
This means, the agency will begin August grant payments on Tuesday, 2 August 2022. The older persons grant will be the first grant distributed by the age.
How Much Does SASSA Pay
Each grant type has its own set amount that beneficiaries receive each month.
Here is how much each grant pays per month:
- Older Persons < 75yrs: R1,980
- Older Persons > 75yrs: R2,000
- Disability Grants: R1,980
- Children Grants: R480
Where to Collect SASSA Grant?
SASSA has partnered with some supermarkets such as Pick n Pay, Boxer, and Shoprite for beneficiaries to have alternative methods to receive their grant payment. You may also collect your grant from the ATM using your card.
Payment may also be collected at the Post Office or at the stations made available by SASSA in some communities.
