Millions of South Africans depend on SASSA (South African Social Security Agency) grants to afford basic necessities. Having your exact November 2023 payment dates is vital for managing your budget. This comprehensive guide covers when all key SASSA grants will be disbursed next month.

Older Person’s Grant Payment Date

The Older Person’s Grant (OPG) is consistently paid on the 2nd of each month.

In November 2023, OPG recipients can expect their grant on Thursday, 2 November. Applicants must be over age 60 to qualify for this monthly support.

The standard OPG amount is R2,010 per month for those aged 60-75. Beneficiaries over 75 receive R2,160 monthly.

Any other SASSA grants linked to an OPG recipient’s account will also be paid on the 2nd. For example, a caregiver’s Child Support Grant deposited into their parent’s OPG account follows the 2nd of the month schedule.

Disability Grant Payment Date

The Disability Grant is disbursed on the 3rd of each month.

Therefore, the November 2023 Disability Grant will be paid on Friday, 3 November. To receive this grant, applicants must submit medical assessments verifying inability to work due to disability.

The current monthly amount for the Disability Grant is set at R2,010. As with the OPG, any other grants linked to a disability recipient’s account are paid simultaneously on the 3rd.

Child Support and Other Grant Payment Date

The remaining SASSA grants are all scheduled for the 6th of each month.

In November, these will be paid on Monday, 6 November. This group covers:

  • Child Support Grants
  • Foster Child Grants

Weekend and Holiday Payment Schedule Changes

If the scheduled payment date falls on a weekend or public holiday, disbursement will occur the preceding Friday instead.

For example, if the 3rd were a Sunday, the Disability Grant would be paid on Friday the 2nd. This applies to all SASSA grant types to ensure access to funds.

How Payment Dates are Set Each Month?

SASSA structures its calendar by:

  • Paying OPGs first
  • Following with Disability Grants the next day
  • Disbursing remaining grants two days after OPGs

This prioritizes the elderly and disabled. The standardized schedule then continues through the month unless impacted by weekends.

After much anticipation, the South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) has finally released the payment schedule for November. This announcement comes as a relief to many beneficiaries who were left in uncertainty due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

First and foremost, it is important to note that all existing SASSA grants will be paid on their respective dates as per usual. This includes old age pensions, disability grants, child support grants, foster child grants, and care dependency grants.

However, there are some changes to the payment schedule for certain groups of beneficiaries. These changes are intended to ease congestion at payment points and ensure social distancing measures are followed.
