SASSA Gold Card Expiry Date April 2023: What You Need To Know

Introduction

As April 2023 approaches, it is important for all South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) grant recipients to take note of their SASSA Gold Card expiry date. SASSA Gold Cards are debit cards issued by SASSA and Post Bank for the collection of grants at various pay points and to make purchases at retail shops or ATM withdrawals.

Recently, SASSA announced that those SASSA Gold Cards that have already expired in March 2023 will not be valid for April 2023 grants payments. Therefore, those who have not yet renewed their expired cards must visit their nearest Post Office or SASSA offices to get a new card.

Renewing your card before the expiry date will ensure that you continue to receive your grants payments without any disruptions.
