The management of Sassa has hinted its beneficiaries that, they can use their Sassa cards to withdraw cash at ATMs and also use them for shopping at supermarkets since the card also serves as a debit card. This was made known in an update released on their official handles.
The SASSA card is also a debit card. A client can use the card to purchase goods and withdraw cash.
All clients are advised that they can use their SASSA card at ATMs or supermarkets like Boxer, Pick ‘n Pay, U-save, Shoprite, Checkers, including other outlets.
Clients receiving grants at pay points are advised to create a PIN when collecting their grants during the July 2022 payment. This will enable them to use their SASSA card to draw their money at ATMs and supermarkets like Pick ‘n Pay, Boxer, Shoprite, Checkers, U-save, and other outlets.
They can also access their money on any day during and after the payment without going to the pay points on the date specified.
Your funds can be kept safely in your card and there is no need to draw all of it at once. You can even use your card to pay at supermarkets instead of
drawing cash. SASSA staff will continue to assist affected clients.
