Linked Grants Follow Primary Date

If you receive additional SASSA grants paid into the account of a parent, spouse, etc., those funds will arrive on the primary recipient’s date.

For example:

  • A caregiver’s Child Support Grant deposited into their grandmother’s Older Person’s Grant account will be paid on February 2nd.
  • A spouse’s Disability Grant linked to their partner’s bank account will arrive on February 5th.

The main recipient’s payment schedule determines the linked grant date.

Weekend and Holiday Date Changes

If the scheduled calendar date falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or public holiday Monday, payment will be issued the Friday before instead.

For example, if the 6th were a Sunday, the Child Support Grant would be paid on Friday, February 3rd. This ensures access to funds.

Payment Order and Prioritization

SASSA structures its monthly calendar by:

  • Paying Older Person’s Grants first
  • Following with Disability Grants a few days later
  • Disbursing remaining grant types 1-2 days after that

This method serves the elderly and disabled first.

Confirm Your Precise Date

While this SASSA schedule is consistent, you can verify your exact February payment date by:

  • Checking the SASSA website
  • Calling the SASSA helpline
  • Visiting your local SASSA office
  • Reviewing SASSA social media

To ensure accurate on-time payment:

  • Confirm SASSA has your latest contact information
  • Notify SASSA right away of any changes
  • Know your grant type and associated date
  • Follow up immediately if your February funds don’t arrive as scheduled

With this handy calendar overview, you can now plan and budget for your February 2024 SASSA grant payments. Just be sure to verify your precise date and follow up with SASSA if anything seems amiss. Here’s to a successful month ahead!
