Being aware of the SASSA payment schedule is crucial for beneficiaries as it ensures timely receipt of their grants. The payment schedule outlines the specific dates on which each grant will be paid out by SASSA during the month of October.

The SASSA payment schedule is divided into three categories: pension and disability grants, child support grants, and foster care grants. Each category has its own designated payment dates, which are determined based on the last digit of your ID number.

For pension and disability grants, payments will be made on 4th October 2021 for ID numbers ending in 0 or 1, followed by 5th October for IDs ending in 2 or 3, and so on until the final date of 15th October for IDs ending in either 8 or 9.

This schedule is important for all beneficiaries to be aware of, as it ensures timely and efficient delivery of funds.

October 2023 marks an important month for SASSA, as it will be implementing a new payment system that aims to improve the overall experience for grant beneficiaries. This new system will involve the use of biometric technology, where beneficiaries’ fingerprints will be used to verify their identities and prevent fraud. As a result, there may be some changes in the payment dates compared to previous months.

According to the schedule, all social grants will be paid on specific dates based on the type of grant received. The first set of payments will start on October 1st with grants such as old age pension and disability grants being paid out. On October 2nd, foster care grants and child support grants will follow suit.
