The majority of people in South Africa rely on SASSA GRANTS, and they expect to be paid early each month so that they can buy their necessities, which are usually groceries. It is critical to know the date so that one does not become confused or spend too much money before receiving their next pay. Prior to the pandemic, there were no specific dates for SASSA grant payments; people simply knew that when the month ended, they would begin receiving their monthly payments.
Back in the day, everyone got their money at the same time, but now there are specific days for individuals, and the child is the last one to get their money, while the elder is the first one to go get their payments, due to the lockdown restrictions, making it easier for one to keep the social distance and they are able to collect their payments and go home quickly. Although the new system does not benefit many people, it maintains order. August is a much better month than July; check the dates for the August SASSA grant payment.
