Sassa beneficiaries will receive their grant money on 28th of November and they are advised to use it wisely this festive season.

In preparation for the festive season, Sassa recipients will be getting their December grants a bit earlier than usual.

Sassa has announced that the beneficiaries will be paid on 28 November.

General Manager of Grants Administration at Sassa, Henry De Grass says they are appealing to the beneficiaries to use the money wisely because the next payment will only be on the 29 December.

We appeal to them to use the money wisely over the festive period.

According to De Grass, there are about 59 000 beneficiaries who are still using their old Sassa cards. He says from January 2019 the old Sassa cards will no longer be functional therefore the beneficiaries are advised to visit Sassa offices to do a card swap.

We are appealing to those 59 000 beneficiaries to please come now in December and do a card swap so that you can get your money in January.
