SASSA on cards being valid beyond 31 March 2021
The South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) is refuting social media misinformation and claims about the expiry of the SASSA-SAPO Card on 31 March 2021. These claims are not true. The SASSA Cards will NOT stop working on 31 March 2021.
The cards will have to be replaced, as indicated by the SA Reserve Bank report but there is no set date by which time this must be done. Information on the card replacement will be made public in due course.
SASSA clients have the right to choose their payment method and there is nothing that forces the clients who are currently being paid through the South Africa Post Office (SAPO) to change to bank accounts. They will still be paid using the current SASSA-SAPO card beyond April 2021.
EDIT: Not to collect payment – but to apply for a grant.
