Payment Options

Beneficiaries have several payment options available, each with its own access conditions:

  1. Bank Account Payment: Beneficiaries can opt to have their grant directly deposited into their bank accounts, providing them with 24/7 access to their funds. Many beneficiaries are choosing this option due to its flexibility.
  2. Changing Payment Method: To switch from a gold card to a bank account, beneficiaries need to obtain a form from their nearest SASSA office, have it stamped by their preferred bank, and return it to SASSA along with their bank statement or proof of an active bank account.
  3. Retail Outlets: Selected retail outlets, including Pick n Pay, Shoprite, Boxer stores, Usave stores, and Checkers, have partnered with SASSA to distribute social grants. Beneficiaries can access their funds at these outlets during operational hours.
  4. Post Office Branches: Beneficiaries can collect their grants at Post Office branches nationwide. However, they can only do so during predetermined time frames and official payment dates.
  5. Mobile Cash Pay Points: Mobile cash pay points are available for grant beneficiaries to collect their funds. However, this option is less flexible, with beneficiaries only able to collect payments for a few hours during a grant payment cycle.
