The South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) distributes more than 18 million permanent grants every month. These grants allow beneficiaries to purchase basic goods and services monthly. A social grant is paid by the government to assist individuals how need assistance with basic needs.

Sassa grants are for South African Citizens, permanent residents and some grants are for asylum seekers and special permit holders as well.

Sassa has released the grant payment schedule for the rest of 2023 and the first three months of 2024. This payment schedule will ensure grant beneficiaries know when they can collect their monthly grant payments. 

Sassa Grants

Permanent grants distributed by Sassa include the Older Persons grant, Disability grant, War Veterans grant, Foster Child grant, Child Support grant, Child Support Grant top-up and the Grant-in-aid. The Child Support grant is also known as the Care Dependency Grant.

Sassa Payment Dates

Each Sassa grant has a different payment date as a way to spread the activity out over the month and keep queues as short as they can. Beneficiaries of this social relief grant must be aware of the payment dates so they don't miss out on their social grant.

Payment Method

You can collect your Sassa grant form a nearby supermarket like Checkers, Boxer or similar stores. Post Office branches also pay out some grants, but not the SRD grant. If you give Sassa your bank account details they can pay your Sassa R350 grant and other Sassa grants into your bank account.

Financial institutions can be useful because you can then withdraw cash from your bank account when you need it.

You will be issued with a Sassa card which is linked to your ID number. This allows you to access your Sassa Srd grant and other grants.

Child Support Grant

The child support grant is given to the parents or caregivers of children under 18. The grant will be paid to the child's primary caregiver until they turn 18. Payment dates are communicated each month so that you know when the grant will be paid.

The best way to avoid long queues at Sassa payment points is to have your grant paid directly into your bank account.
