March Sassa Grants Payment Starts This Week



More than 18 million people receive permanent social grants from the South African government. Many of these grant beneficiaries will receive their March 2023 grant payment this week.



The South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) revealed that permanent social grant payments will begin this week. However, some permanent grant recipients will have to wait a few extra days before they can access their money.

The distribution of permanent grants will start on Thursday 2 March 2023, starting with the Older Persons, followed by the payment of disability grants on Friday, 3 March 2023. The remaining grants will be paid to beneficiaries during the following week.

Here Are The Sassa Grant Payment Dates For March 2023

  • Older Person's Grants - Thursday, 2 March 2023
  • Disability Grants - Friday, 3 March 2023
  • Child support and other grants - Monday, 6 March 2023

Sassa explained that grants are paid from the second day of each month. However, permanent grants are not paid on weekends or public holidays.

This means that in March, beneficiaries of children’s grants and other support grants will have to wait until Monday, 6 January 2023 to collect their money.

Sassa reminded grant beneficiaries that they are not required to collect their grant payment on the designated date. This is because once the grant is paid, it remains available for collection at the convenience of the beneficiary.

Grant beneficiaries can collect money at several different payment points including ATMs, retail stores, post offices and mobile cash pay points.

Beneficiaries can access their money at any time when collecting their grant at an ATM or retail store. Grant collection at post offices occurs during a predetermined time frame (grant payment dates) while mobile cash pay points are only available for a few hours during a payment cycle.

Retail stores that pay social grants to beneficiaries include Shoprite Checkers, U-save, Pick n Pay and Boxer stores.
