The post office said some of its branches will have insufficient cash but ad ded that the majority of the SASSA grants for the month have been paid already – and therefore recipients of the R350 social relief of distress grant, especially, are encouraged to use alternative channels to access the money.
“The arrangement, therefore, applies to remaining beneficiaries who receive the R350 SRD grant and beneficiaries who use cash pay points,” said the Post Office.
SASSA GOLD CARD
SASSA beneficiaries that make use of the Postbank-issued gold card can use it to make commission-free cash withdrawals at a supermarket.
The gold card can also be used to make withdrawals from ATMs across the country. However, bank charges will apply.
