Latest Updates to this story : SASSA asked Cash Send or Ewallet account users to submit their bank account details for payment

SASSA has made a public notice that all SRD R350 grants applicants who opted for cash send to be their payment option will have to wait.


In a statement released on Thursday, 30th September 2021 on their Facebook page with a copy here, SASSA said they have made a request from the National Treasury to help have the complete partnership between SASSA and the banks so that Cash Send or Ewallet account holders can use the bank’s ATM machines.

According to SASSA this is largely due to the procurement process and are working on it to make sure that as soon as the discussion is finalized with National Treasury, all payments will follow through immediately and paid fully.


Below is the actual section of the post stating the reasons why cash send payments have still not been processed.

About 1.5 million applicants chose to be paid through the cardless payment channel at ATM’s. This category has not been paid as yet due to the fact that SASSA went through a procurement process to use this payment method with the banks, and National Treasury is currently considering this request. “As soon as Treasury approves our request, we will pay every cent owed to this category of beneficiaries without any waste of time. We really empathise with them but we also have a responsibility to follow the law”: SASSA CEO, Busisiwe Memela-Khambula said.
