Where To Collect Your Sassa Grant 

Grant beneficiaries can receive their grants directly deposited into their bank accounts. Alternatively, they can collect their grants in cash at various locations, including ATMs and stores like Pick n Pay, Checkers, Shoprite, and Boxer. 

Sassa reminded beneficiaries that they are not necessarily required to withdraw the money on the exact Sassa grant payment date. This is because the funds will remain available to the beneficiary to use after it was deposited in their bank account by the Social Security agency. 

There is no need to rush to withdraw cash on the first day. Once the money is in the account, it will remain there until needed.

Future Sassa Grant Increases 

Sassa grants will increase on 1 October 2024 so beneficiaries will receive an increased grant payment in their bank account from that date. The first grant increase for 2024 was implemented in April 2024. 

SRD Grant Payment Dates 

Approximately nine million people are paid from the Social Relief of Distress (SRD) grant distributed by Sassa.  However, it’s important to note that SRD grants are not paid during the permanent grants payment cycle. 

While Sassa has not yet released any SRD grant payment dates for July 2024, grant beneficiaries are usually paid in the final week of the month.
