Sassa social grant payments for June
- 3 June 2021: Older person’s Grants
- 4 June 2021: Disability Grants
- 7 June 2021 All other grants
Sassa also confirmed “there is no need to rush to withdraw cash on the first day”.
Social grants are usually paid from the first of every month except in December, as from January , the South Africa Social Security Agency (SASSA) will pay beneficiaries, who use banks, ATM’s and merchant outlets from the 01 January despite the day falling on a public holiday.
“The rationale behind was to protect beneficiaries from the December shopping traffic and its attendant risks especially for the elderly,” he added.
“The move however is misinterpreted as a December double payment by a few and others think another early payment for January is on the cards- which is not true.”
Letsatsi further said social grant beneficiaries are also reminded that upon approval of their grants they have the right to choose a payment method.
“They can either choose a direct payment into a bank account of their choice or a manual cash payment at a paypoint for instance. A beneficiary choosing a direct payment into their bank account makes it easy and convenient because they can receive their money anywhere in the country,” he explained.
“Beneficiaries who wish to switch to banks can arrange that at their nearest SASSA office. SASSA however does not cover bank charges that may arise in the case of direct payments into private bank accounts of beneficiaries.”
