How To Change Srd Sassa Banking Details

Sassa allows beneficiaries to receive their Special Covid-19 Social Relief of Distress (SRD) grants via their personal bank account. Sassa will now also be able to draw funds from the grant account to pay providers directly as a result of this new system which was rolled out last month. To change your bank account details for the SRD grant, please follow these steps.

The South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) introduced flexible methods for payment of Special Covid-19 Social Relief of Distress (SRD) grants in order to meet the needs of beneficiaries and households.

Sassa said it uses the following methods to receive grants: receiving grants via personal bank accounts and money transfers via major banks.

Receiving beneficiaries may change or update their bank details by visiting the Sassa website. Beneficiary, sassa is sending you a notification to remind you that they will be making your payments directly into your new bank account as soon as it has been verified.

How To Change your Banking Details for SRD Grant:

  1. Click here to visit the SRD website.
  2. Scroll to “How do I change my banking details”.
  3. Enter your ID Number.
  4. An SMS containing a secure link, unique to you, will be sent to the mobile phone number with which you registered during the application.
  5. Click on the link in the SMS.
  6. Follow the instructions carefully.

Sassa is explaining that you can only provide your own banking details as the grant payment will not be paid into another person’s bank account. This is to ensure the correct payment goes directly to you, avoiding fraudulent activities.

Sassa may contact a beneficiary who has not fully completed their registration in the course of a transfer. Those who select the money transfer option through a major bank, need to ensure that the mobile phone number on which they received the SMS is registered in their name.

This is because Sassa cannot pay their grant payment to a mobile phone number which is registered with another person.
