The Issue: Network Overload on Post Office Payment Platform

The root cause of the payment glitches that some SASSA recipients have faced for the September 2023 payments lies in network overload on the Post Office payment platform. As the payment dates approached, an unexpectedly high volume of transactions and withdrawals placed immense pressure on the system.

This sudden surge in activity led to delays and disruptions, preventing some beneficiaries from accessing their funds promptly. We understand that this situation has caused anxiety and inconvenience for those affected, and for that, we sincerely apologize.
