SASSA Resolving Outstanding Grant Payments for January 2024

SASSA Resolving Outstanding Grant Payments for January 2024. The South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) is set to rectify the suspension of financial support for thousands of vulnerable individuals who did not receive their January 2024 grant payments. This setback was attributed to discrepancies in beneficiary details, leading to the suspension of grant payments.

In the initial month of 2024, approximately 150,000 social grant beneficiaries faced non-payment due to mismatches between their ID numbers and bank details. The Auditor General’s observations prompted Sassa to investigate potential fraudulent activities, leading to the decision to temporarily suspend grant payments.

To address the issue, Sassa suspended grant payments and urged beneficiaries to update their personal details promptly. The agency emphasized the importance of accurate information to prevent fraudulent exploitation of the system.
