Sassa Grants For March Are Now Being Paid



Millions of social grant recipients will receive their money this week. This comes as the South African Social Security Agency begins with March 2023 grant payments.



The South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) distributes more than 18 million permanent grants to vulnerable individuals every month. These grants are paid from the second day of each new month. This means grant beneficiaries can collect their money from Thursday, 2 March 2023.

Sassa distributes several permanent grants monthly. These grants include the Older Persons grant, Disability grant, Child Support grant, Grant In Aid, Care Dependency grant and the War Veterans grant.

Here Are The 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

While Sassa endeavours to pay social grants on consecutive days, this is not always possible and thousands of grant beneficiaries will receive their money later this month if they collect their money at certain pay points.

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

Sassa grants paid to beneficiaries at pay points and post office branches are only distributed on weekdays. Grants will not be distributed on weekends and public holidays.

In March 2023, this means that beneficiaries of child support and other grants will have to wait until Monday, 6 March 2023 to collect their money.

Beneficiaries can access their money at any time when collecting their grant at an ATM or retail store. Retail stores that pay social grants to beneficiaries include Shoprite Checkers, U-save, Pick n Pay and Boxer stores.
