The South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) pays more than 18 million grants monthly to vulnerable recipients. These grants allow the most vulnerable members of our society to purchase basic goods and access basic services every month.
Sassa distributes several permanent grants every month. These grants include Older person grants, disability grants, child support grants, foster child grants, war veterans grants and care dependency
The first week of each month typically covers the disbursement of permanent social grants. Staying updated on the Sassa payment schedule is recommended for all beneficiaries.
Here’s the Sassa grant payment schedule for November:
Older Persons Grant: 2 November 2023
Disability Grant: 3 November 2023
Children’s Grants: 6 November 2023
SRD Grant Sassa Payment Dates for November

R350 Grant Increases
The R350 grant has not seen an increase since its inception due to fiscal constraints as explained by the Department of Social Development (DSD). While the DSD proposed an increase to the SRD grant to the National Treasury, it was not favourably considered due to fiscal limitations.
Permanent grant beneficiaries and R350 grant recipients can opt for direct deposit into their bank accounts, providing convenient access to their funds.
Sassa grants are accessible at selected retailers nationwide, ensuring easy access for grant recipients. Retail outlets like Pick n Pay, Shoprite, Boxer stores, Usave stores, and Checkers all facilitate social grant distribution.
Mobile Cash Pay Points
Mobile cash pay points are also available for grant beneficiaries, though this method has limited flexibility, with funds accessible for only a few hours during specific payment cycles.

The YES Programme is a business-led collaboration with government to reduce unemployment by giving our youth an opportunity to develop new skills and gain meaningful workplace experience, which will improve their chances of finding long-term future employment significantly. A pivotal advantage of engaging in a YES program lies in the hands-on experience it offers. Participants immerse themselves in authentic work environments, acquiring practical skills and knowledge directly applicable to their forthcoming careers. This hands-on exposure proves invaluable in establishing a robust foundation for professional advancement, thereby increasing the potential for securing employment in the future.
Furthermore, membership in a YES program opens the door to exposure in one of the largest financial services institutes. This exposure grants participants a distinctive understanding of the industry, allowing them to glean insights from seasoned professionals. The accompanying networking opportunities can be advantageous for expanding one’s professional connections within the field, further contributing to increased job prospects.
Active involvement in a YES program not only provides experience but also opens doors to potential permanent employment opportunities. Demonstrating exemplary performance and maintaining a positive attitude are essential, as individuals may be considered for permanent roles within the organization, offering stability and long-term career prospects.
It is crucial to recognize that participants in a YES program receive a stipend rather than a conventional wage. This stipend, designed to cover basic transportation costs, serves as a practical support during their program engagement.
