Confirmed: Here are the official SASSA payment dates for August 2021

Uncategorized

SASSA has confirmed its official payment dates for August will go ahead as previously scheduled. All grants will be made available early next month, but as of today, there’s still a substantial wait before recipients can access their funds.

SASSA payment dates for August 2021 revealed

That’s because August payment dates don’t actually start until the 6th – one week on Tuesday. According to the yearly calendar, this is the joint-latest date that payments will be made over the next nine months. Therefore, millions of SASSA beneficiaries will have to make their money last two or three days longer than usual.

As ever, it’s worth noting that those with the means won’t have to rush to collect their grants on the designated payment dates. Once the funds have been issued, they remain in your account, allowing recipients some ‘breathing space’.

R350 grant, SRD support remains inactive

Those who receive more than one SASSA grant will have BOTH of them paid on the day their first payment becomes available. Furthermore, there is no suggestion that the R350 grant will return any time soon – but the ANC is still working on a structure to introduce a ‘Basic Income Grant’ – likely to support those who relied on SRD handouts.

It’ll be the older persons grant that gets paid out first in July. That’ll be followed by disability grants the next day, and 24 hours later, recipients will be able to get their child support grants, as well as all other SASSA support payments. Here are the scheduled dates for next month, as confirmed earlier on Sunday:

  • – Tuesday 6 August: The OLDER PERSONS GRANT comes online.
  • – Wednesday 7 August: The DISABILITY GRANT is made available.
  • – Thursday 8 August: Finally, CHILD SUPPORT GRANTS and ALL OTHER PAYOUTS can be accessed.
