SASSA Cards Expiry March 2024 Announcement

The South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) has recently announced that the current SASSA gold card, which is used by social grant recipients to receive their monthly payouts, will be expiring in March 2023. This means that all SASSA gold card holders will need to collect new cards in order to continue receiving their social grants.

SASSA is urging all social grant recipients with expiring gold cards to go to their nearest post office branch to collect their new cards starting from Monday, 13th March 2023. Recipients will need to bring their South African Identity Document and the current SASSA gold card that is expiring in March 2023 (03/2023) in order to receive their new card.

It is important to note that failure to collect the new SASSA card will result in grant payments being withheld. SASSA is therefore urging all grant recipients to make arrangements to collect their new cards as soon as possible.

The SASSA gold card is a vital tool for social grant recipients, providing a means to access their monthly payouts, which include child support grants, disability grants, and old age pensions. The new cards are expected to have improved security features, making them more secure and less prone to fraud.
