SASSA relief fund
The method for withdrawing your SASSA relief fund may vary depending on the payment method you selected during the application process. Here are the most common methods for withdrawing SASSA relief funds:
- SASSA Card: If you selected the SASSA card as your payment method, you can withdraw your funds at any ATM that accepts SASSA cards. To withdraw your funds, insert your SASSA card into the ATM, enter your PIN, and follow the instructions on the screen to withdraw the funds.
- Bank Account: If you provided your bank account details during the application process, your SASSA relief funds will be deposited directly into your bank account. You can withdraw the funds by visiting your bank’s ATM or branch, or by using online banking or mobile banking services.
- Mobile Money Transfer: If you selected a mobile money transfer service such as Vodacom’s M-Pesa, MTN’s Mobile Money, or Cell C’s WiCode as your payment method, you can withdraw your funds at any authorized retailer or agent of the mobile money transfer service. To withdraw your funds, you will need to provide your ID number and the transaction code provided by the mobile money transfer service.
It’s important to note that withdrawing SASSA relief funds may be subject to fees and charges, depending on the payment method and the service provider. You should check the terms and conditions of your payment method to understand any fees or charges that may apply to your withdrawals.
If you have any issues with withdrawing your SASSA relief funds, you can contact the SASSA toll-free helpline at 0800 60 10 11 or visit your nearest SASSA office for assistance.
What are the fees for withdrawing SASSA relief funds using a bank account?
The fees for withdrawing SASSA relief funds using a bank account may vary depending on the bank and the type of account you have. However, SASSA has negotiated with banks to ensure that beneficiaries can access their grant payments without incurring excessive fees.
In general, some banks may charge a small fee for ATM withdrawals, while others may offer a certain number of free withdrawals per month. Some banks may also charge a fee for over-the-counter withdrawals or for using their online or mobile banking services.
It’s important to note that SASSA beneficiaries who receive their payments through a bank account can use the Post Office for free cash withdrawals, instead of using an ATM that may charge fees. Beneficiaries can visit any Post Office branch and provide their SASSA card and ID book to withdraw cash.
If you have any questions about the fees for withdrawing SASSA relief funds using a bank account, you can contact your bank’s customer service department or visit your nearest SASSA office for assistance.
