The South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) is responsible for disbursing social grants to millions of individuals across the country.
In recent months, social grant beneficiaries encountered challenges regarding withdrawing their monthly funds.

The government agency has revealed that social grants have started receiving their monies for the March 2023 payment cycle.
In a statement, Sassa has confirmed that it has begun distributing social grants. Here are the Sassa grant payment dates for March 2023
- Older Person’s Grants – Thursday, 2 March 2023
- Disability Grants – Friday, 3 March 2023
- Child support and other grants – Monday, 6 March 2023
The Agency has continued to remind grant beneficiaries that they are not required to collect their funds on the exact payment date.
Once the grant has been paid, the money will remain available until the beneficiary chooses to collect their grant.
Grant recipients may collect their funds using several different methods which include collecting money at ATMs, retail stores such as Shoprite Checkers, U-save, Pick ‘n Pay and Boxer stores.
Sassa has encouraged Social Relief of Distress (SRD) grant beneficiaries to provide their bank of choice as a preferred payment method to be able to access and collect their monies from anywhere.
Clients have also been warned to refrain from collecting their SRD grant payments from the South African Post Office, as this entity is no longer used as a payment collection point.
This comes after the contractual agreement between Sassa and the Post Office fell through.
The Post Office has since received a penalty for failing to provide services in the previous financial year.
