Older persons who are beneficiaries of the South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) social grants can collect their money on Wednesday, 2 August 2023.
The South African Post Office (SAPO) still pays out all other grants except for the R350 Social Relief of Distress (SRD).
SASSA GRANTS PAYMENT DATES FOR AUGUST
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, CashSend, or by getting the amount directly transferred into their bank account.
If you are a SASSA beneficiary or know of someone who is, you may be wondering when the relevant grant payments will be made.
