Many people are still unaware that they will not be getting their grants on 1 May.
Sassa has taken the decision to stagger grant payments.
From now on, old age grants and disability grants will be paid on the 3rd of every month and child grants and other grants on the 5th of every month.
3 May though, falls on a Sunday, so old age and disability grants will be paid on 4 and 5 May, and child grants and all other grants will be paid on 6 May.
Bearing in mind that April’s grants were paid earlier, this is going to be a very long month for many.
I only wish that this information was made available to grant recipients when they received their payouts the last time.
Perhaps they could have budgeted a little better to accommodate this late payout.
