There's good news for social grant beneficiaries - they'll receive payment early this month and next month.
The Department of Social Development has confirmed the payment dates for the South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) grants for December 2021. And Sassa says “there is no need to rush to withdraw cash on the first day”.
The South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) is a government entity responsible for distributing social grants to more than 16 million deserving South Africans. Operating since 2006, SASSA continues to pride itself as one of the government's flagship agencies aimed at mitigating the devastating impact of poverty and unemployment prevalent in our society. Through the distribution of various social grants, SASSA aims at poverty elimination, promotion of social cohesion as well as contributing to economic development.
