Good news! The South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) has released the social grants payment dates for February 2023.


As previously reported, in 2022, SASSA said it heard beneficiaries’ complaints about the previous payment schedule and decided to make a change.

SASSA said if the second day of the month falls on a weekend or public holiday, the payment will take place on the following work day. Older person and the associated grants are paid first followed by disability grants and child grants.

Meanwhile, social grant beneficiaries have been urged to continue using their Postbank-issued gold cards and to use the multiple ways available to access their funds, including retailers and ATMs. 

“Social grant clients with the gold card can continue using the same card as it remains valid at any place that accepts bank card transactions. Beneficiaries can also use the gold card at outlets nationwide that provide the cashback functionality, which includes Shoprite, Checkers, U-save, Pick ‘n Pay and Boxer,” the agency said.
