Where To Collect Your Sassa Grants In August
In August, beneficiaries of Sassa grants have multiple options to collect their grant money. They can do so at various participating retail outlets, the post office, and mobile cash pay points.
Retail outlets that pay Sassa grants include Checkers, Shoprite, Pick N Pay, and Boxer Stores. Beneficiaries can visit these stores during their operating hours to collect the grant after it has been paid by Sassa.
Alternatively, beneficiaries have the choice to receive their grant directly into their bank account. Many beneficiaries prefer this option because it eliminates the need to travel to a physical location to collect the grant money, saving them time and expenses.
It also spares them from waiting in long queues, making the process more convenient.
When Grants Will Be Paid In August 2023
Sassa distributes grants to beneficiaries during the first week of every month. August grant distortion will commence on Wednesday, 2 August 2023 with the older persons grants. All permanent grants are set to be paid in the first week of August 2023.
