Sassa Grants Now Being Paid For September

Millions of vulnerable people receive grants from the South African Social Security Agency (Sassa). Sassa distributes grants in terms of the Social Assistance Act. Under the framework of the act, Sassa oversees the implementation of various social assistance programs. This includes the distribution of several permanent grants.

These grants include the Older Persons pension grant, Disability grant, War Veterans grant, Care Dependency grant, Foster Child grant, Child Support grant, Child Support grant Top-Up and Grant-in-aid. 

When Permanent Grants Are Paid 

Sassa distributes permanent grants at the beginning of each month. These payments will commence on the second day of each month.

It’s important to note that Sassa does not pay grants on public holidays or weekends. This essentially means that if the second day of the month is on a weekend or public holiday, the grant will be paid on the next weekday.

How To Collect Permanent Sassa Grants

There are a few ways beneficiaries can collect their grants. These include:

Bank Account 

Permanent grant beneficiaries and SRD grant recipients have the option of having their grants paid directly into their bank account. This is a convenient grant payment method, as beneficiaries can access their money at any time after the payment was made by Sassa. 

Retail outlets

Sassa grants are paid to selected retailers around the country. The vast geographical footprint of retail outlets makes it easy for grant recipients to find one close to where they live.

Beneficiaries can withdraw their money at any time when the retail outlet is operational. Pick n Pay, Shoprite, Boxer stores, Usave stores and Checkers all distribute social grants.

Mobile Cash Pay Points 

There are also mobile cash pay points where grant beneficiaries can collect their money. However, this is not a flexible payment option and beneficiaries may only collect their grant payment for a few hours during a grant payment cycle.

R350 Grant Payment Dates For September

It’s important to note that the special SRD grant, does not have a fixed payment date. However, the agency has recently revealed that R350/SRD grants will be paid towards the end of every month.

The processing of grants take place during the latter stages of the month as Sassa conducts various verification checks to ensure the grant applicant meets the qualifying criteria for the grant. 

This means that R30 grant beneficiaries could expect their grant payments during this timeline: Payment period from 22 September 2023 to 29 September 2023

Once Sassa approves applications for this grant, beneficiaries are notified via message when their R350 grant payment is available for collection.

During the designated payment week, Sassa encourages beneficiaries to check their Sassa status on the SRD website to determine the exact date when their grant payment will be deposited into their bank accounts.

The agency also reminds grant recipients that it typically takes approximately 2-3 working days for the funds to appear in their bank accounts after the payment has been processed.

How To Collect R350 Grants

Bank Account 

R350 Grant Beneficiaries can choose to have their grant paid directly into their bank account. This allows them to access the money as soon as it is available. 

Cash Send 

Individuals who do not have a bank account can make use of the R350 grant CashSend payment option. Beneficiaries use their ID numbers and phone numbers to access their grant money. You must have a cellphone with a registered cellphone number and proof of identification to use this grant payment method. 

Retail Stores 

Grant beneficiaries can collect their R350 grant at several retail stores around the country. Pick N Pay, Checkers, Shoprite and Boxer stores pay the R350 grant. 

Sassa has made it clear that beneficiaries should not rush to withdraw their Sassa payment on the first day it becomes available and to remember that once the money has been sent to their accounts, it will remain there until they need it. 

Sassa Grant Increases

Every year, the Finance minister announces social grant increases. In 2023, permanent Sassa Grant beneficiaries will receive two rounds of increases with one already having taken place.

These grants were recently increased in April and will see another increase in October 2023. The amount of money received by grant beneficiaries will increase again in October 2023 except for the Child Support Top-up grant.

However, the R350 grant has remained at the same value, with many calling for it to be increased.
