All SASSA R360 “Cash Send” recipients are paid via bank account and Post Office. SASSA sent an SMS notification to all beneficiaries who chose the cash send payment option to choose a different payment method and SASSA has paid the grant to all who responded and chose a different payment method, either bank account or Post Office.

All though, SASSA has been reluctant on giving a time period for verifying and approving banking details. Nonetheless, from experience by lots of people. It will take Sassa at least 7 business working days to 10 business working days to verify and process banking details from the day you submitted your banking information to Sassa.

It it has taken longer than expected, we suggest you contact SASSA by these SASSA Contact Details to make inquiry

Yes, once you’re approved for a particular month, SASSA will definitely pay your grant and it doesn’t matter how long it takes. However, SASSA will have to complete verifying your new banking details before they can disburse your grant money into the account.

When SASSA approves your banking details, you should get a payment date. If the payment date keeps longer than expected, you don’t have to worry, SASSA is still processing your payment and you’ll definitely get paid. However, if you still want to make an inquiry, then use the contacts info to contact SASSA. SASSA Contact Details

First, you can make inquiries from SASSA. Second, sometimes the banking verification may take more than the expected period depending on how your bank communicates with SASSA. Third, SASSA has not given a specific time period they take to verify banking details.

So, in case you still don’t see a possible verification soon, contact SASSA for assistance.

I have submitted my banking details about 6 months ago, they are still not verified. All my payments since then have been approved but not dates. I called Sassa so many times and I’m told the same thing.. “Just wait, they will approve it”. Can’t I go to the offices and maybe sort this matter out because calling hasn’t done anything for me.

SASSA will try to verify your banking details with your bank; Tyme Bank and once the verification is done, SASSA will approve and give you the date of payment as usual. Again, it also depends on how your bank communicate with SASSA.

Universityonlineapplication April 29, 2022 - 3:10 pm

SASSA verifies your payment details before approving your grant money and also gives you a payment date. Once you’re given a payment date, you are to collect your money via the payment method SASSA has verified.

If you want to change your payment method to a bank account, we suggest you wait to collect the one which is cleared before you make such a change.
