SASSA Gold Cards to Remain Valid in December and Beyond

Postbank Ensures Continuity for Social Grant Recipients

SASSA Gold Cards to Remain Valid in December and Beyond. Postbank has announced that the South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) gold cards will remain valid not only in December but also in the months to come. This reassuring news means that social grant recipients can continue to use their cards without any disruption.

Supporting Millions of Social Grants Beneficiaries

This development is a significant relief for millions of social grant beneficiaries who won’t have to switch to cards from other banks. The use of SASSA Gold Cards for disbursing social grants has been instrumental in empowering marginalized communities and simplifying access to funds, particularly in rural areas with limited traditional banking infrastructure.

Postbank’s Commitment to Convenience and Affordability

Postbank’s spokesperson, Dr. Bongani Diako, expressed the bank’s commitment to providing convenient and affordable service quality to disadvantaged individuals. The assurance that SASSA Gold Cards will remain functional beyond December 2023 is a highlight of this commitment.

Beware of Misleading Information

Dr. Diako cautioned beneficiaries against falling victim to misleading information regarding their cards and unscrupulous retailers. It is essential for beneficiaries to ignore any information that directs them to switch to other card products, falsely claiming that SASSA Gold Cards are being replaced. Only Postbank has the mandate to replace SASSA Gold Cards.

Protecting Beneficiary Rights

No retailer or shop has the authority to force beneficiaries into making purchases. SASSA beneficiaries should report any retailer or shop that attempts to coerce them into buying goods before receiving their SASSA grants. Beneficiaries have the right to their full SASSA grant payment and can use the money as they see fit.

Benefits of the SASSA Gold Card

Dr. Diako highlighted the advantages of using the SASSA Gold Card, emphasizing that it can be used to withdraw SASSA grants from a wide network of ATMs across the country, including those of any bank and various retailers like Boxer, Pick n Pay, Shoprite, Usave, Spar, and Shoprite. This wide array of channels reduces the need for beneficiaries to endure long queues at Post Offices or cash pay points.


SASSA Gold Cards also provide several transaction benefits, including free withdrawals within retail shops, free 3-month statements, and balance inquiries. These benefits empower beneficiaries by allowing them to receive their full grant money and save on transaction costs
