In today’s Sassa News – Recently, Sassa has become aware of a number of social media posts warning social grant recipients not to disclose their personal information to any other person as it may put them at risk.

Such postings on anonymous platforms spread rumours that Sassa staff members are trying to collect personal details and a number of false statements have been made.

South Africa Social Security Agency (Sassa) has cautioned social grant recipients that a misleading advert has been spreading on social media allegedly from Sassa, stating that it is offering additional service grants for beneficiaries.

This is in response to a Facebook post being circulated by Sassa employees where they claim to have sent out 160 000 job vacancy advertisements but are not receiving any applications.

According to Sassa, the social media job post going viral is fake. Sassa urged its beneficiaries to always contact them via their official channels.

“Please note that the below advert is FAKE and does not come from SASSA. All SASSA vacancies are advertised on national newspapers or the agency’s website “

In addition to the fraud alert issued earlier this month, Sassa has also implemented a new scheme that allows grant recipients to confirm the authenticity of their payment details online (

Sassa is responsible for providing social grants to South Africans who lost their job due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
