SASSA form to receive grant payment through a personal bank account


Beneficiaries who wish to receive their grants through their own personal bank accounts need to complete a SASSA Annexure C (bank form) requesting this. This form can be obtained from any SASSA office or by clicking the link below. It must be completed by the beneficiary and the bank he/she has chosen and returned to the SASSA office. This form cannot be submitted electronically (online).

PLEASE NOTE: The SASSA Annexure C (bank form) is applicable to all grants but does NOT apply to the R350 Covid-19 Social Relief of Distress (SRD) Grant.

Should you wish to change from the SASSA/SAPO bank account to your own private commercial bank follow the instructions below,

  1. Print out the form.

  2. Take it to your bank to be filled in and STAMPED.

  3. Submit it to a SASSA local office for capturing. 

  4.  As soon as this written request is processed, SASSA will then deposit the social grant money directly into the bank account.

PLEASE NOTE: Grant recipients will have to submit this form in person to their local SASSA office since they will need to use their biometric information (finger prints) to confirm their request to change their method of payment and bank details.
