The SASSA Gold Cards Remain Valid After December



The SASSA Gold Cards Remain Valid After December

The SASSA Gold Cards Remain Valid After December. A substantial number of Sassa’s 19 million grant recipients rely on their Sassa gold cards for accessing their funds. In a recent announcement, the South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) has provided crucial information regarding the continued validity of Sassa gold cards in 2024, offering reassurance to the millions who utilize these cards for their monthly social grants.

Grant Distribution Overview

Sassa disburses 19 million permanent grants, encompassing various categories such as the Older Persons pension grant, Disability grant, War Veterans grant, Care Dependency grant, Foster Child grant, Child Support grant, Child Support grant Top-Up, and Grant-in-aid.

Extended Validity for Expired Sassa Gold Cards

Contrary to rumors suggesting non-payment of social grants due to expiring gold cards, Sassa assures grant recipients that they can use their gold cards, even if they expire in 2024, to access their grant money.

Postbank Reassurance and Scam Awareness

Postbank spokesperson Bongani Diako reinforces the assurance that Sassa grant beneficiaries will continue receiving their social grants beyond December. Additionally, recipients are cautioned to be vigilant against scammers during the festive season.

Sassa Extends Validity of Gold Cards

Earlier in the year, Sassa identified approximately 5.3 million cards set for replacement by December 31, 2023, with many already expired. Sassa announced an extension, allowing beneficiaries to use expired cards until the end of December 2023.

Postbank November Announcement

In November 2023, Postbank declared that beneficiaries would no longer need to renew their Sassa gold cards. This announcement ensures the normal functioning of gold cards for social grant payments beyond December 2023, extending into 2024.

No Need for Card Replacement

This crucial development eliminates the necessity for millions of social grant beneficiaries to switch from their Sassa Gold Cards to alternative payment methods offered by other banks. The extension of the cards’ validity provides continuity without the inconvenience and expenses associated with card replacement.

Benefits of Sassa Gold Cards

Sassa Gold Cards come with various transaction benefits, including free withdrawals in retail shops and complimentary statements. These features empower beneficiaries, offering savings on transaction costs and ensuring a seamless grant payment experience.
