SASSA Commences Grant Payments for February. With the advent of February, the South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) has initiated the distribution of grant payments for this month. This critical financial assistance program reaches millions of individuals, offering support to those in need.

SASSA Grant Programs

SASSA extends its aid to over 18 million South Africans monthly, administering a range of permanent grants. These include the Older Persons pension grant, Disability grant, War Veterans grant, Care Dependency grant, Foster Child grant, Child Support grant, Social Relief of Distress (SRD) grant, Child Support grant Top-Up, and Grant-in-aid.

The standard practice is for permanent grant payments to commence in the first week of the month. However, February presents challenges as Sassa does not process payments on weekends or public holidays.

Checking Sassa Grant Status

Sassa emphasizes that grant beneficiaries can conveniently check their Sassa status on the SRD website during the designated payment week. This allows them to determine the precise date when their Sassa grant payment will be credited to their bank accounts.

Grant Collection Locations

Grant beneficiaries have the option to collect their grants at ATMs and various retail stores, including Pick n Pay, Checkers, Shoprite, and Boxer. Additionally, Sassa beneficiaries can opt to have their Sassa grant payments directly deposited into their bank accounts for added convenience.
