Sassa gold cards will work beyond December expiry date: Postbank
Social grants beneficiaries using Sassa gold cards will be paid their grants using their expired cards in December and all subsequent months, Postbank said on Tuesday.
“This important development means that millions of social grants beneficiaries don’t have to change their Sassa gold cards to the cards of the other banks,” said Postbank spokesperson Bongani Diako.
Postbank said payments of social grants through Sassa gold cards over the years has empowered marginalised populations and made it easier for them to get their funds, especially in rural areas where traditional banking infrastructure may be limited.
“Guaranteeing that Sassa gold cards will work beyond December 2023 is one of the highlights of Postbank’s commitment to providing convenient and affordable service to the disadvantaged."
Postbank advised beneficiaries to disregard misleading information that might direct them to change to other card products while claiming that the Sassa gold cards are being replaced.
“Postbank is the only bank mandated to replace Sassa gold cards.”
