South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) distributes more than 18 million permanent social support grants per month. The Sassa grants ensure that vulnerable people have access to basic goods and services.
Sassa payments are made on the second day of every month to beneficiaries. If the second day of the month falls on a weekend or a public holiday, Sassa grants may be paid later.
There are a number of permanent grants that are distributed by Sassa, including the Older Persons Grant, the Disability Grant, the Child Support Grant, the Foster Care Grant, the Grant in Aid, the War Veterans Grant, and the Care Dependency Grant.
Sassa will begin distributing permanent grants in February 2023 with Older Persons grants on Thursday, 2 February 2023. There will be a disability grant distribution on Friday, 3 February 2023. Payout of the remaining Sassa grants will take place next week.

The Sassa grant payment does not need to be collected on the scheduled date that the Sassa grant is due. The money will remain in the beneficiary’s account until they decide to use it.
“There is no need to withdraw cash on the first day,” the agency said. The money will remain in the account until it is needed.”
Sassa grant beneficiaries can collect their grants using a variety of payment methods. A retail store or ATM may accept grants as a form of payment. A number of retailers are available in the country, including Shoprite, Checkers, U-Save, Pick ‘n Pay, and Boxer.
The SASSA provides grants and allowances to groups in South African society who need assistance. There are grants for children, grants for the elderly, and grants for people with disabilities. Furthermore, SASSA manages the R350 grant for the special relief of distress during the Covid-19 crisis.
SASSA payments can be made in a number of ways. SASSA cards, bank accounts, the Post Office, or CashSend can all be used for payment. The SASSA grants are designed to help you meet your basic needs.
Since the SASSA R350 grant was introduced, an increase in SRD SASSA applications were being submitted to srd.sassa.gov.za, since it serves a variety of purposes. On this site, you can not only submit your SASSA application for R350, but you can also check the status of your SASSA SRD application.
An SASSA appeal gives a chance to a SASSA grant application that was rejected.
