Meanwhile, SASSA 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.
