Correct Sassa payment dates

Posted in Latest News

Klerksdorp Midweek, Klerksdorp - SASSA amended their social grant payment dates for October.

“We have changed the social grant payment dates for October 2021: We apologise for the human error on the post for October. The error has been corrected,” Sassa said.

Earlier this year, SASSA posted a calendar of every payment date for 2021. However, when they published the dates for October, these were out of sync with the original programme.

All payment dates have been pushed back to the day after. Unfortunately though, this does mean that every grant recipient will have to wait an extra 24 hours before claiming their grants.

Older person’s allowance: Tuesday 5 October.
Disability allowance: Wednesday 6 October.
Children’s grants allowance: Thursday 7 October
R350 Grant: No specific payments dates are given, but they will be actioned from Thursday 7 October at the earliest.

All grants: It’s worth noting that you DO NOT have to collect your grant on the exact day it is made available. The money will stay in your account until you’re ready to withdraw it.

Last week’s Klerksdorp Record published incorrect dates as we were not aware of SASSA’s error. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
