The South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) is responsible for distributing social grants to more than 18 million beneficiaries on a monthly basis.

According to the government agency, the social grants ensure that vulnerable individuals access basic goods and services.

As per the Sassa payment schedule, social grants are paid out in the first week of every month, but it is important that grant recipients know when their monies will be available for withdrawal.

Here's The Sassa Grant Payment Schedule for April 2023:

  • Older Persons Grant - 3 April 2023
  • Disability Grant - 4 April 2023
  • Children's Grant (and all other grants) - 5 April 2023

These dates apply to individuals that are beneficiaries of permanent grants such as the Older Persons Grant, Disability Grant, Child Support grant, Foster Care Grant, Grant in Aid, War Veterans Grant, and the Care Dependency grant.

In a statement, Sassa mentioned that beneficiaries don't need to fetch their Sassa grant payments on that specific day and once the money is in the account, it will remain there until it is needed.

Social grants are no longer collected at the Agency’s offices and Post Office, but beneficiaries may make withdrawals of their funds at retail stores, such as Shoprite, Checkers, U-save, Pick ‘n Pay and Boxer as well as ATMs. 

Grant beneficiaries also have the option of using their bank accounts for their Sassa monthly payments.

Social Relief of Distress (SRD) grant recipients don’t have a specific payment schedule for when they can withdraw their monies and they have been advised to wait for an SMS notifying them of their payment date before attempting to withdraw their funds from merchants or ATMs.

South Africa's ongoing living crisis, extreme levels of poverty and unemployment show no signs of slowing down even with the help of social grants. But, one expert says that the guaranteed distribution of the R350 grant can actually serve as a starting point for people to get out of the vicious poverty cycle.
