The South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) has announced that older persons who are beneficiaries of social grants will be able to collect their payments on Tuesday, September 5, 2023.

SASSA, in collaboration with the South African Post Office (SAPO), continues to facilitate the distribution of various social grants and allowances to disadvantaged individuals in South Africa. However, it’s important to note that the R350 Social Relief of Distress (SRD) grant is not included in this particular payout.

Beneficiaries have the convenience of receiving their SASSA payments through selected supermarkets, including Pick n Pay, Boxer, USave merchants, Checkers, and Shoprite. These payments can be accessed using the SASSA card, CashSend, or by direct bank account transfers, ensuring a smoother process for those in need of financial assistance.

If you are a beneficiary or know of someone who is, you may be wondering when the relevant grant payments will be made.

Older persons and their associated grants will be paid first on Tuesday, 5 September followed by disability grants and child grants on the dates as below:

  • Older Persons/ Pensioners Grant: Tuesday, 5 September
  • Disability Grant: Wednesday, 6 September
  • All other Grants: Thursday, 7 September
