How to Change SASSA Card to Bank Account: A Step-by-Step Guide

If you’re a SASSA beneficiary who is still receiving your grants via a SASSA card, you may be interested in switching to a bank account. A bank account offers several advantages over a SASSA card, including easier access to your funds and the ability to make purchases online. In this article, we’ll go over the steps involved in changing your SASSA card to a bank account and the documents you’ll need.

Step 1: Choose a Bank The first step in changing your SASSA card to a bank account is to choose a bank. You can choose any bank that participates in the SASSA payment system, such as Absa, Capitec, FNB, Nedbank, or Standard Bank. Once you have chosen a bank, you can visit the bank’s nearest branch.

Step 2: Provide the Required Documents When you visit the bank, you’ll need to provide the following documents:

  1. A valid ID document, such as a South African ID card, a passport, or a refugee permit.
  2. Proof of address, such as a utility bill or a bank statement.
  3. Your SASSA card and a photocopy of it.
  4. A letter from SASSA confirming that you are a grant recipient and that your grant is being paid into your SASSA card. You can obtain this letter by visiting your nearest SASSA office.

Step 3: Complete the Application Form After you have provided the required documents, the bank will give you an application form to complete. The application form will ask for your personal information, such as your name, address, and contact details. You’ll also need to provide your bank account information, such as the name of the bank, the branch code, and your account number.

Step 4: Wait for Approval Once you have completed the application form, the bank will verify your documents and process your application. This process may take several days, so you’ll need to be patient. Once your application has been approved, your grant payments will be transferred to your bank account.

  1. I did everything what you said and still nothing happened. I went to the sassa office in Sasolburg on the 5th if April 2023 with all the said documents to change to my bank account but it is still not done. Very frustrating. I wonder if it will be done before the card expires at the end of December.
