The South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) will be paying out social grants one week earlier this month, because of the upcoming municipal elections, which will take place on Wednesday, 3 August, Krugersdorp News reports.
For beneficiaries who use ATMs, stores and other payment channels, their grants are now available. Beneficiaries who receive their money at allocated pay points can also receive their money until Friday, 29 July.
Sassa has confirmed that there will be no payment at pay points on the expected days, namely 1–3 August, but, if you miss the three-day early payment, you will still be able to collect your money when pay point payments resume on Thursday, 4 August.
Beneficiaries are advised to contact Sassa on 0800 60 10 11 or 012 400 23 22 if they have any queries.
