SASSA Confirms December Social Grant Payment Dates 2021

SASSA Confirms December Social Grant Payment Dates 2021

The South African Social Security Agency has released its schedule for December 2021 payment dates. This includes disability grants, older persons and all other grants.

In order to comply with social distancing restrictions that are in place to prevent the spread of Covid-19, SASSA  has assigned different payment dates for different grant categories.

These various dates have been allocated to avoid circumstances where ATMs, banks, the Post Office, or SASSA offices would be overcrowded.

Payment dates for social grants in December 2021 are listed as follows, according to SASSA’s schedule:

  • Older persons’ grants will be paid from 1 December 2021. This includes any grants linked to these accounts.
  • Disability grants will be paid from 2 December 2021. This includes any grants linked to these accounts.
  • All other grants will be paid from 3 December 2021. These include children’s grants, foster care grants and care dependency grants.

As for the SRD grant, there is no set payment date. However, should you be receiving the grant at a Post Office, the Post Office will not be disbursing the grant on the above dates.

With Post Office payments, your collection day is determined by the last 3 digits of your ID number. The Post Office is yet to announce the SASSA grant payment schedule for December.

Beneficiaries of the R350 grant who receive their SASSA grant payouts through the Post Office, a Boxer store or a PicknPay store are urged to wait for an SMS saying their grant is ready before they go out to collect.
