May 2024 Sassa Grant Payment Schedule and Updates

Looking ahead to May 2024, beneficiaries of the South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) should mark their calendars for the upcoming grant payment dates. Sassa provides various permanent grants to support financially vulnerable individuals across South Africa, including the Older Persons pension grant, Disability grant, War Veterans grant, Care Dependency grant, Foster Child grant, Child Support grant, Child Support grant Top-Up, and Grant-in-aid. Each month, Sassa disburses grants to approximately 18 million South Africans, typically during the first week.

May 2024 SASSA Social Grants Payment Dates

Here are the Sassa grant payment dates for May:

  • Older Persons Grant: May 3, 2024
  • Disability Grants: May 6, 2024
  • Children’s Grants: May 7, 2024

It’s important to note that Sassa payments are scheduled for the second working day of each month, excluding weekends and public holidays.

In February 2024, Finance Minister Enoch Godongwana announced the 2024 Sassa grant increases during his Budget Speech. The Minister of Social Development has since confirmed these increases.
