December marks the final month of the current year, which means 2023 is only a few weeks away, so it would be wise to keep up with Sassa’s 2023 payment schedule as a social grant recipient.
Although the 2022 festive season may be well underway, Sassa grant recipients still need to keep up to date with the agency’s payment schedule in order to receive their payment on time, particularly with 2023 around the corner. With this in mind here are the social grant payment dates for the first few months of 2023.
- Older Person Grant: 03/01/2023
- Disability Grant: 04/01/2023
- Children’s Grant: 05/01/2023
- Older Person Grant: 02/02/2023
- Disability Grant: 03/02/2023
- Children’s Grant: 06/02/2023
- Older Person Grant: 02/03/2023
- Disability Grant: 03/03/2023
- Children’s Grant: 06/03/2023
In addition to this, only qualifying beneficiaries will receive the social grant payouts every month. Some social grants increased in October this year following an announcement by Finance Minister, Enoch Godongwana during his budget speech in February earlier this year.
The Disability Grant increased from R1 890 to R1 990 in October and the War Veterans Grant also increased from R2 000 to increase to R2 010. The Old Age Grant increased to R1 980 (in April) and further increased to R1 990 (in October).
For people older than 75 years, the grant increased by 5.2% from R2 000 in April and then to R2 010 (in October). These amounts have already been confirmed by Sassa.
