In this article, you will see how you can Switch Your Sassa Grant Payment Method To Shoprite Money Account.
Retail chains have a large geographical footprint and can be found in most communities around South Africa. This makes them a convenient option for millions of social grant beneficiaries wanting to collect their money.
The South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) pays permanent grants to more than 18 million people every month. There are several ways these grant beneficiaries can choose to collect their money.
One of the payment options available to grant beneficiaries is to collect their money at a retail store. Sassa grants are paid at several retail stores, including Africa’s largest supermarket retailer Shoprite Holdings which operates more than 3,000 stores.
Sassa grant beneficiaries can choose to collect their money at Shoprite, Checkers or Usave stores around South Africa. To do this, they must switch their Sassa grant payment method to a Shoprite Money Account.

Benefits Of A Shoprite Money Account
