SASSA Card Renewal 2023 Guide

If you are a recipient of a SASSA Gold Card, it is essential to know that there is an expiry date on every card, just like any merchant-issued ATM card. This date is usually indicated as mm/yyyy, where mm represents the month and yyyy represents the year. For example, 04/2023 means the card will expire in April 2023, while 09/2023 means September 2023.

Since SASSA pays grant recipients on these cards, it is crucial that they remain active and functional. If your SASSA Gold Card is expiring this year, you need to know how to renew it. Fortunately, SASSA has outlined the procedures that applicants are to follow for renewal, which were announced in March 2023.
