Sassa Grant Payment For March Begins

The South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) will begin distributing permanent grant payments from tomorrow, 2 March 2023. 

The agency revealed payment dates for the month of March a few weeks ago, during February 2023. Sassa grants are typically distributed on a monthly basis, which beneficiaries can withdraw at any time. 

On Thursday, 2 March, Sassa will first distribute payments for the Older Persons grant, followed by the payment of Disability grants on Friday, 3 March 2023. The remaining grants will be paid to beneficiaries during the following weeks. 

Here Are The SASSA Grant Payment Dates For March 2023

  • Older Person’s Grants: Thursday, 2 March 2023 
  • Disability Grants: Friday, 3 March 2023 
  • Child support and other grants: Monday, 6 March 2023

Sassa wishes to remind grant beneficiaries that they are not required to collect their grant on the exact payment date. Once the grant is paid, the money will remain available until the beneficiary chooses to collect their grant.

Currently, beneficiaries can collect grants using several different methods. Payment methods include collecting money at ATMs and retail stores, which include Shoprite Checkers, U-save, Pick n Pay and Boxer stores.

Beneficiaries need to provide their ID and cellphone numbers, and must ensure that this is the same cellphone number that they used to register on the SASSA database, as a confirmation pin will be sent to this number to prevent fraud. 

Beneficiaries can also receive their money as a direct deposit from SASSA into their bank accounts, if that is a preferred method of collecting grant money.

When registering for a grant, banking details of the beneficiary are provided; SASSA has encouraged recipients of the Social Relief of Distress (SRD) grant to provide their bank of choice as preferred payment method, as it would grant them access to collect their SRD grant from anywhere.

Beneficiaries are also urged not to collect their SRD grant payments at the South African Post Office (SAPO), as the post office is no longer an outlet for grant payment collection.
