Where To Collect Sassa Grants For September 2023



Social grants play a vital role in providing financial assistance and support to vulnerable individuals and families living in South Africa. The grant distributed by Sassa aims to reduce poverty, reduce inequality, and improve the overall well-being of the most disadvantaged members of the country. 



The South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) revealed how much money grant beneficiaries will be paid in September 2023. The grant payment agency has now informed grant beneficiaries where they will be able to collect their social grant payment in the new month. 

Which Grants Sassa Pays 

Sassa distributes several different types of social grants to vulnerable people living in South Africa. These grants are distributed based on the age and personal circumstances of the grant beneficiaries. 

Permanent grants disputed by Sassa include the OlderPersons grant, Disability grant, War Veterans grant, Care Dependency grant, Foster Child grant, Child Support grant, Child Support grant Top-Up and Grant-in-aid.

The Grant Payment Options In September 2023 

In September 2023, beneficiaries of Sassa grants have multiple options to collect their grant money. These different payment methods aim to provide flexibility and accessibility for the more than 18 million permanent grant beneficiaries in South Africa.

Bank Account

Permanent grant beneficiaries have the option to receive their grants directly into their bank accounts. This method offers convenience as beneficiaries can access their money at any time after the payment is made by the Sassa. It also spares them from waiting in long queues, making the process more convenient.

Many beneficiaries prefer this option because it eliminates the need to travel to a physical location to collect the grant money, saving them time and expenses.

If you want to have your grant paid directly into your bank account, you need to get a form from your nearest Sassa office, take it to your preferred bank for a stamp then send it back to Sassa with your bank statement or proof of an active bank account from your bank.

Retail Outlets 

Sassa grants are also paid through selected retailers across the country. The widespread presence of these retail outlets makes it easy for grant recipients to find one close to their location. Beneficiaries can withdraw their money whenever the retail outlet is operational. 

Retailers including Pick n Pay, Shoprite, Boxer stores, Usave stores, and Checkers all distribute social grants.

Mobile Cash Pay Points

There are mobile cash pay points available for grant beneficiaries to collect their money. However, this payment option is less flexible, as beneficiaries can only collect their grant payment for a few hours during a grant payment cycle.

New Grant Payment Method

Earlier this year Sassa announced a brand new grant payment method. Grant beneficiaries can now collect their Sassa grant without a Sassa gold card. This would not have been possible before the announcement. 

This announcement came as a welcomed relief to millions of grant beneficiaries. This is because many of these grant beneficiaries had Sassa gold cards that were set to expire in the coming months. 

What's Needed To Collect Your Grant Without A Card

  • Cellphone
  • Identification number
  • Your Sassa gold card PIN. 

When You Can Collect Your September 2023 Grant Payment
