The failure of their mobile number verification may lead to them not having a payment date.Beneficiaries should provide their own banking details, since grants will not be paid into another person’s account. The purpose of this is to make sure that the grant payment goes to the right person and to prevent fraud. Beneficiaries must have a mobile number registered in their name on which they receive SMS notifications.Due to Sassa’s policy, grants cannot be paid to a mobile
