Will Sassa Grants Be Paid During Easter?



Millions of people are patiently waiting for their grant payments from Sassa. The agency has revealed whether grants will be paid during the Easter weekend. 



The South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) currently handles roughly 19 million permanent grant payments each month, which include various permanent grants.  Permanent grants distributed by Sassa 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. 

Additionally, around nine million individuals receive the Social Relief of Distress (SRD) grant, which is crucial financial assistance for unemployed adults in South Africa.

While the permanent grant payments for March 2024 have already been completed in the first week of the month, SRD grant payments are still pending and are scheduled to be distributed during the final week of March. However, due to Sassa's policies, the timeframe for SRD grant payments will be shorter this March.

Will Sassa Be Paying Grants During Easter?

Sassa grants won't be disbursed over the Easter weekend because of the agency's payment policy, which doesn't allow payments on weekends or public holidays. Since there's a public holiday at the end of March, grants will not be paid out then.

So When Will SRD Grants Be Paid?

SRD grant payments for March will be made between 25 March 2024 and 29 March 2024

SRD grant payments are made during the final week of the month after Sassa completes various verification checks. These verification checks seek to ensure only deserving individuals receive SRD grant payments. 

Funds will take about 2 - 3 working days to reflect in the client’s account after payment has been processed.   

Sassa's permanent grant payments will then continue on 3 April.
