Sassa Releases Official Grant Payment Dates For November


Almost 50% of the South African population currently benefits from social grants. As the new month starts, payment dates for social grants have been confirmed.




The South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) has been administering social grants to deserving individuals since 2006.

These social grants include the Older Persons grant, Disability Grant and the children support grants, just to mention a few. 

Here Are The Sassa Grant Payment Dates For November 2022:

  1. Older Persons Grant - 2 November 2022 (This includes any grants linked to these accounts)
  2. Disability Grant - 3 November 2022 (This includes any grants linked to these accounts)
  3. All the other grants will be paid from 4 November 2022

Earlier this year, Sassa spokesperson, Paseka Letsatsi announced that the Social Relief of Distress (SRD) grant will no longer be administered through the South African Post Office. This has resulted in SRD grant beneficiaries not having a fixed payment date.

However, beneficiaries have been advised to check their grant payment dates and grant status on the Sassa SRD grant website. 

The agency has also advised recipients of the grant to be patient should they not see their payment dates on the website, as this means that the payment has not yet been processed but will soon be processed.

According to Sassa, there is no need for grant beneficiaries to rush to withdraw cash on the first day because the funds will remain in the account of the beneficiary until they are needed. Beneficiaries have been assured that they will not be charged any fees for collecting their grants at supermarkets.

The National Treasury has predicted that the number of social grant recipients is to increase by an average of 1.5%, which then translates to 19.2 million grant recipients in 2024/25.
