Sassa Grant Payment Dates For August 2023


July will be over in just a few days and for Sassa grant beneficiaries this means that the latest Sassa grant payment dates for August 2023 have been announced. Let's have look at them, as well as other important details that will ensure that these grant payments can be accessed without any hassles or delays.



The South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) is responsible for disbursing these social grants which provide much-needed financial assistance to various qualifying individuals and families in need.

Sassa grants aim to provide financial aid to vulnerable South Africans, helping them meet their basic needs and improve their quality of life. The grants offered by the agency include the Older Persons Grant, Disability Grant, Child Support Grant and the Social Relief of Distress grant.

Sassa Grant Payment Schedule For August 2023

For the millions of vulnerable South Africans who depend on social grants to maintain their livelihoods, knowing when and where Sassa grants are being paid is of utmost importance.

Here are the Sassa payment dates for August:

  • Old Persons Grant: 2 August.
  • Disability Grant: 3 August.
  • Children's Grant:4 August.

As mentioned above, apart from these permanent social grants, there are other social grants available, such as the Social Relief of Distress (SRD) grant, among others.

The SRD Grant Payment Schedule

The SRD grant, commonly known as the R350 grant, is a temporary grant intended to offer short-term relief to eligible individuals. Unlike other Sassa grants with specific payment dates, the SRD grant does not have a fixed payment date.

Beneficiaries are instead notified via SMS by Sassa when their grant payment is available. However, Sassa has reassured recipients of the SRD grant to remain patient if they do not see their payment dates on the website immediately, as the processing may take some time. Beneficiaries will eventually receive their payments.

For permanent social grant beneficiaries, having access to a bank account is essential for accessing their grant payments. This is usually done through a Sassa Gold card, which can be used in various cash pay points. Alternatively, beneficiaries can also use the Postbank or their bank account to receive their grants.

Where To Collect Your R350 Grant

Recipients of the R350 grant have the option to receive their grant directly into their bank accounts, enabling them to access the money as soon as it becomes available. Moreover, they can also receive their grant payments through the CashSend option and major retail stores such as Pick N Pay, Checkers, Shoprite, and Boxer stores.
