Usually, Sassa pays on the first day of the month unless the first day of the month falls on a public holiday or falls on the weekend. If any of such cases occur, payment will be made the preceding working day.

Now here are the dates, take note


Here are the updates to the post which was written before the following changes came in later from SASSA with respect to the new arrangement of SASSA payment dates.

In March 2020, it became necessary for the agency to make new payment dates for the remainder of the year due to the global pandemic. In a statement released by SASSA for which a copy of it was posted on their Offical Facebook, indicated the new dates which were to take effect in April 2020

Per new arrangements, old age, and disability grants are to paid earlier and two days later the rest of the grants paid accordingly.


This became necessary after SASSA had reports of physical struggle among other Sassa recipients and elderly people at some pay points and malls. From April, Old Age and disability grants are to be paid on the 3rd and 4th whilst the rest be paid on the 5th and 6th. They also made it clear that if a child support grant is linked to the Old Age or disability grant, the child grant will also be paid alongside that of the cardholder.

The statement also advised beneficiaries not to go to the bank or ATMs before the said dates. Doing so will only result in disappointment.

As a warning to all beneficiaries, SASSA warns that all people should safely keep their cards as fraudsters are lurking in ambush everywhere to steal from them. They advised the people to keep their cards at a safe place and if they cannot access the ATM as a result of old age or sickness or illiteracy, they should look for someone they can truly trust.

The government of South Africa is committed in province social support to its citizens who are disadvantaged.

In a case on the said date or two days after you have not received any funds in your account, please make official complaints at the nearest Sassa office for the issue to be redressed.
