You should be able to change your RSD R350 grant banking details after following the above process.

Let us now look at some of the things you should know when you’re changing your SASSA RSD banking details.

You Should Own The Bank Account

When you’re changing your bank details to a new one, it is well to make sure the new bank account that you’re changing to is open in your name and it is yours.

This is because SASSA will only pay your R350 grant or any other SASSA grant into a bank account that is yours and in your name.

The South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) will not pay your grant money into an account that is not open in your name per the identification records they have about you.

In such a case, you may not receive your grant money.

We do recommend that you read Why Is My SRD Grant Approved But No Pay Date? for a detailed explanation.

SASSA will use your banking details to make future payment after they verify your details you provide as your banking details.

You Should Own The Phone Number

Should you select the money transfer option via one of the major banks, you should also make sure the mobile phone number on which you will receive your SMS is registered in your name.

Now, let us look at some of the frequently asked questions (FAQs) about changing SASSA banking details.
