SASSA Payment Dates for April 2023: Old Age Pension, Disability, and Child Support Grants
The South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) provides a range of social grants to eligible individuals and households in need of financial assistance. These grants include the Old Age Pension Grant, the Disability Grant, and the Child Support Grant, among others. SASSA payment dates are typically set for specific days of the month, depending on the type of grant.
For April 2023, SASSA has announced the following payment dates for its key grants:
- Old Age Pension Grant: Tuesday, 4th April 2023
- Disability Grant: Wednesday, 5th April 2023
- Child Support Grant: Thursday, 6th April 2023
It is important for beneficiaries to note that these payment dates may vary depending on their payment method. For example, some beneficiaries receive their grants via bank transfer, while others receive them through a SASSA debit card. Beneficiaries are advised to check their payment method and the corresponding payment date to ensure that they receive their grant on time.
In addition to announcing the payment dates, SASSA has also issued a reminder to beneficiaries whose debit cards expired in March 2023. These individuals are urged to visit their nearest Post Office to renew their cards, as expired cards cannot be used to withdraw funds or receive funds. Failure to renew the card may result in delays or complications in accessing the grant.
SASSA debit cards are a popular payment method for beneficiaries, particularly those who live in areas without easy access to a bank. The cards can be used to withdraw cash at Post Offices and selected retailers, and can also be used to make purchases at participating stores.
To renew a SASSA debit card, beneficiaries are required to bring their ID book or card, as well as the expired card.
