SASSA Payment Dates for May 2023 Undergo Critical Changes
The South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) has recently announced that there will be some critical changes made to the payment dates for social grants in May 2023. This notification is for all social grant recipients who depend on the agency for their livelihood.
According to the new payment schedule, the money for social grants will be accessible to beneficiaries as follows: May 4 for older persons, May 5 for disability grants, and May 8 for children’s grants. SASSA has encouraged beneficiaries to consider using their payment cards to purchase goods or related commodities rather than withdrawing their funds in full.
Moreover, social grant recipients have been advised to be patient and not rush to withdraw their funds from their accounts. SASSA has assured its clients that the funds will remain available in their accounts until they are ready to withdraw them. Clients who may not be able to withdraw their funds during the first few days of payment have been advised not to panic and rush to withdraw their funds.
It is important to note that this change will only apply to May 2023. If there are any changes to the payment schedule, SASSA will duly communicate with its beneficiaries. SASSA has expressed its apologies for any inconvenience or frustration caused by this change, and remains committed to providing much-needed support to those who rely on its services.
In conclusion, SASSA has made some critical changes to the payment dates for social grants in May 2023, and has urged beneficiaries to exercise patience and caution when accessing their funds. By providing this important information, SASSA hopes to ensure that the transition to the new payment schedule is as smooth as possible for its clients.
