Dates for SASSA grant payments in December

Dates for SASSA grant payments in December. SASSA financial year hasn’t been the best since technical issues preventing grant withdrawals from ATMs hampered payments earlier this year.

It is estimated that around 600,000 SASSA beneficiaries were unable to collect their grants in September due to a technical glitch. SASSA claims to have resolved the issue promptly, ensuring that beneficiaries received their funds as soon as possible.

Year-end Updates: When to Expect December Grants

The SASSA is keen to inform beneficiaries of the grant payment dates for the holiday season as the year draws to a close. When the money is in the account, it will remain there until needed, so recipients should not rush for cash withdrawals on the first day.

Payment Schedule

SASSA will begin paying various social grants on December 1, 2023, according to SA News:

  • Older Persons/Pensioner’s Grant: Payments will begin from Friday, December 1, 2023.
  • Disability Grant: Payments will begin from Monday, December 4, 2023.
  • Children’s Grant: Payments will begin from Tuesday, December 5, 2023.

Important Note for SASSA Gold Card Holders

“All grant beneficiaries should be aware that SASSA gold cards will not expire in December and will continue to work for grant payments beyond that date.”

Convenient Payment Options

Payments can be obtained through SASSA cards by heading to an ATM or by opting for direct transfers into beneficiaries’ accounts through supermarkets, such as Pick n Pay, Boxer, USave merchants, Checkers, and Shoprite.


Security Advisory

It is strongly recommended that beneficiaries exercise caution and avoid entering any important information on non-official SASSA websites. These websites can be exploited by criminals to gather personal data or launch personalized attacks.
