Key March Payment Dates

  • Older Person’s Grant

Tuesday, March 5:

  • Disability Grant

Wednesday, March 6:

  • Child Support Grant
  • Foster Child Grant
  • Care Dependency Grant

Linked Grants Follow Primary Schedule

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

For example:

  • A caregiver’s Child Support Grant linked to their grandmother’s Older Person’s Grant will be paid on March 4.

The main recipient’s date determines any linked grants.

Weekend and Holiday Date Changes

If the scheduled date falls on a weekend or holiday Monday, payment will be issued the Friday before instead.

So if the 6th is a public holiday, Child Support Grants will arrive on Friday, March 3.

Payment Order and Priority

SASSA structures its monthly calendar by:

  • Paying Older Person’s Grants first
  • Following with Disability Grants the next day
  • Disbursing remaining grants 1-2 days after that

This prioritizes the elderly and disabled.
