How to Change SRD Grant to Bank Account

The Social Relief of Distress (SRD) Grant is a program started by the South African government to help people who have lost a lot of money due to the COVID-19 pandemic in the short term. The grant is given to the people who need it in various ways, such as direct cash payments, vouchers, and food packages. But many grant recipients may find getting the money straight into their bank accounts easier and safer. In this section, you will find below the simple steps to change the SRD grant payment method to Bank Account. 

Does SASSA money expire if not withdrawn?

South Africa’s Social Security Agency (SASSA) helps low-income families by giving them money through “social grants.” Many SASSA recipients wonder if their money will run out if they don’t claim it. The good news is that SASSA funds never run out, so people who get them can take their money out whenever they want without thinking about losing it. But it’s important to note that grant recipients shouldn’t leave their money unused for too long. If their grant is cancelled because they haven’t done anything with it, they might have to reapply.

How to transfer money from SASSA to Capitec

You may be curious about how to move money between your SASSA account and your Capitec account if you are a beneficiary of the South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) and have an account at Capitec. 

You will be relieved to know that you can quickly add the data of your Capitec bank account to your SASSA payment platform.

The payments are typically made by SASSA using the form of payment that has been approved. And when you choose a bank account, you need to check that the information about the bank that you supply is correct.

Payments made to persons who specify a bank account will be sent electronically to the institution of their choice. Including the details of your Capitec bank account in your SASSA payment details is necessary if you are a holder of a Capitec bank account. This will ensure that your payment from SASSA reaches your account once it has been processed.
