Sassa has released payment dates for December as November comes to an end. These payment dates include older persons grants, disability grants and all other grants.
Payments will be made from 1 December onwards. The payment dates for December are as follows:
- Older persons grants - 1 December 2020
- Disability grants - 2 December
- All other grants - 3 December
There will be no grant top-ups for the following grants, as Sassa discontinued the R500 top-ups in November:
- Old Age
- War Veterans
- Child Support
- Foster Child
- Care Dependency
The R350 Social Relief of Distress (SRD) grant will continue to be paid for 3 more months.
"Anyone who's declined, must lodge an appeal at the [email protected] site. Anyone who doesn't lodge an appeal will NOT be reconsidered as we don't have funds to reconsider every declined case," said Sassa.
Sassa has urged all grant recipients to not rush to withdraw money.
"There is no need to rush and withdraw cash on the first day. Once the money is in the account, it will remain there until it is needed,"
In an effort to fight fraud, Sassa has adopted an anti-fraud strategy to catch those that are guilty of taking part in fraudulent activities.
“It is precisely because of the implementation of this strategy that the City of Johannesburg employees were identified. In addition, SASSA and the City of Johannesburg have been co-operating on this matter since July 2020”, said Sassa CEO Totsie Memela.
Sassa has urged all citizens to come forward and report fraud.
Sassa toll free number: 0800 60 10 11.
