There has been false rumors going round that the gold SASSA card will be invalid or expire by the end of March. SASSA has refuted this weird claims which has put fears and unnecessary pressure on SASSA recipients across the country.
Below is the official statement from SASSA :
The gold SASSA card will be valid beyond 31 March 2021
The SASSA cards will NOT stop working on 31 March 2021
The SASSA cards will have to be replaced, as indicated by the SA Reserve Bank but there is no date for this yet.
People have the right to choose their payment method but there is nothing that forces the clients who are currently being paid through the post office to change to bank accounts. They will still be paid using the current card.
Information on the card replacement will be made public in due course. #SASSACARES
