The South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) has released the payment dates for its various social grants over the festive period.
The older person’s grants will be paid from Friday this week, while disability grant beneficiaries will be paid from Monday next week.
“There is no need to rush to withdraw cash on the first day. Once the money is in the account, it will remain there until it is needed,” the agency said.
Here are all social grant payment dates for December:
• Older Persons/Pensioners’ Grant: Friday, 1 December
• Disability Grant: Monday, 4 December
• Children’s Grant: Tuesday, 5 December
All grant beneficiaries are reminded that SASSA gold cards will not expire in December and will continue to work for grant payments beyond December 2023.
SASSA beneficiaries can receive their SASSA payments from selected supermarkets, such as Pick n Pay, Boxer, USave merchants, Checkers and Shoprite, and obtain this through their SASSA card or by getting the amount directly transferred into their bank account.
