The South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) recently announced that offices will henceforth be open on Saturdays and Sundays through September. This would allow users of social benefits to trade in their current SASSA cards for the new yellow SASSA card supplied by the Post Office, the agency notified GroundUp on Wednesday.

“SASSA has expanded services to weekends on Saturdays and Sundays from 8 am to 1 pm to ensure that services are available to all beneficiaries,” said Shivani Wahab of SASSA Western Cape.

According to a statement released by SASSA last week, the Post Office will take over beneficiary cash payments when the current contract with Cash Paymaster Services (CPS) expires in September. All recipients will have their payments and receipts handled by the Post Office, with the exception of those who have their grants deposited directly into their bank accounts.

Informational sessions regarding this have been held in several Cape Town communities thanks to a partnership between the Right2Know organization and The Black Sash.

When asked about the Post Office’s role in the grant payment plan and whether any deductions would be made from the new cards, the majority of the senior grant recipients who attended the ceremony in Khayelitsha on May 28 asked this question.
