Outstanding January 2024 Grant Payments 

Sassa also confrimed that unpaid January 2024 grants will be paid during the February 2024 payment cycle. 

In January, of its 19 million beneficiaries, more than 150,000 beneficiaries did not receive their money.

Sassa revealed that the non-payment of 150,000 social grants was the result of discrepancies in grant beneficiary details. These discrepancies relate to ID numbers that do not match with bank records, incorrect banking details and changes changing grant payment methods. 

The agency suspended these grant payments to prevent people from wrongly benefitting from grants. 

"This matter was basically picked up by the AG [auditor general] sharply so, Hence we had to make a decision to ensure that we pay the right grant to the correct person."
