Alert: How to assist grant beneficiaries who had their grants temporarily suspended since September
Since 1 April 2012, the Social Security Agency of South Africa (SASSA) enrolled all grant beneficiaries on a new payment system which links grant beneficiaries into the electronic banking system of SA. Every grant beneficiary now has a new bank account with Grindrod Bank into which the grant is paid.
Thousands of grants beneficiaries must still be enrolled on the system including some people who are physically unable to collect their grants. SASSA temporarily suspended the social grants of everyone who are not enrolled but provides immediate relief for those who needs a home visit.
