JUST ENSURE THAT THE OFFICIALS ARE INDEED FROM SASSA
The South African Social Security Agency is urging all frail and disabled social grant beneficiaries who are unable to visit SASSA or South African Post offices, to contact their SASSA local offices. SASSA is ensuring that home visits are being conducted because by December 2018 all beneficiaries must have the new SASSA card and enjoy its benefits.
Beneficiaries must note that the January 2019 deposits of social grants will not be made in the old white SASSA card therefore they all must card swap into the new gold card before 14 December 2018. Card swaps are conducted at cash pay points, post office outlets and community venues identified by both SASSA and SAPO.
Required documents for the card swap
The old SASSA card and the beneficiary’s green barcoded ID Book or smart card ID must be provided. The card swap will only need the person who actually collects the grant and his/her procurator if there is one.
