From Post Office To Your Preferred BANK ACCOUNT, Read This.
Last week, sassa announced that they have moved a step forward as way to ease the pressure usually seen at the post office. It became necessary as a result of overcrowding at the post office. Some who have been to the place recount their ordeal being in a a long queue for hours sometimes only to be told there is money shortage.
What? Are you kidding? Some even go there as early as 4am. It has been a eyesore. Only God knows the trauma these people have gone through.
Sassa therefore saw the need to make arrangements so that applicants who have been approved can switch from the post office to their preferred bank account.
Most applicants took the opportunity and have change to their respective financial institutions.
Now the question that has been going through those who switch to the banks is when are they receiving their grant in their bank accounts.
Sassa has clarified that, the switch only affect subsequent payments and not payments that have already been issued. In the statement, they said such payments will start from August.
” Please also note that the new banking details will only be used for future payments, after verification” – the statement said.
In effect if you are approved to be paid at the post office before you switch to the bank, you will still receive the approved payment at the post office.
Sassa has always said it takes up to 7 working days or even more depending on the volume of applications being worked on. So your pay date is not necessarily the day that you will be paid. For those who have switched to the bank, they should intermittently check their bank account balance.
