Payment at Sassa pay points will also start on Tuesday. The actual payment dates for pay points are printed on the receipts beneficiaries received with their November payment.

Funds will be available for collection at ATMs and stores until Friday, December 22. The last date of payments at Sassa cash pay points will be Friday, December 15.

Social grant beneficiaries are reminded to keep their Sassa payment cards and pin numbers safe, and not to share them with anyone.

Beneficiaries should also note that the expiry date of their cards has been extended beyond December 2017 and the cards don’t need to be replaced this year.
