Are you a SASSA grant recipient wondering how to withdraw money without a card? Losing your SASSA card can be frustrating, but there’s no need to worry! This article will show you how to withdraw money from SASSA without a card through ABSA’s Cash Send or FNB’s E-Wallet and even how to change your payment method to your personal bank account. Plus, we’ll answer some common questions about SASSA, such as which ATMs you can withdraw from and whether you can collect SASSA money

without an ID.

How to Withdraw Money from SASSA Account Without Card

If you’re a SASSA grant recipient wondering how to withdraw your grant money without a card, we have good news! It is possible to withdraw money from SASSA without a card through ABSA’s Cash Send or FNB’s E-Wallet. All you need to do is visit the nearest ATM of a partner bank to withdraw your grant money without using your ATM card.

While getting a SASSA Card is not mandatory, it’s advisable to get one as the Cash Send and E-Wallet options for SASSA money withdrawals also have their challenges. However, if you don’t have a SASSA Card, you can still withdraw your money from SASSA partner bank ATMs and selected shops to make payments for goods and services.

It’s important to note that the SASSA money is stored on the SASSA card, so it’s highly possible to withdraw the money if the card is physically present at the pay point. However, SASSA has introduced a cashless payment system for grant recipients, which allows them to withdraw money using their mobile phone number if it was used to apply for the grant and registered through RICA.

Can I Withdraw Money Without SASSA Card?

Can you withdraw money without a SASSA card? The answer is yes! Losing your SASSA card can be frustrating, but there’s no need to worry. You can still access your funds by changing your payment method to your bank account. It’s simple and easy, and we’ll show you how.

First, visit the official website of SRD SASSA and scroll down until you find “How do I change my banking details.” Enter your ID and phone number, and SASSA will send you an SMS containing a secure link. Follow the instructions in the link, select a bank account as your payment method, and input your personal account number.

Once you change your payment method, SASSA will verify your details, and you will start receiving payments directly into your bank account. You can also receive payments through E-Wallet or CashSend without a SASSA card.

If you lose your SASSA card, inform the officials immediately and file a report at your nearest police station. To request a replacement card, go to the nearest SASSA office and follow their instructions. Replacement will cost you a fine of R26, which will get deducted from your next payment.

How to Withdraw Money from SASSA Account Without Card

The good news is that you can withdraw your money without the physical presence of your SASSA card by simply changing your payment method to your personal bank account. Payments will be sent directly to your bank account without needing a card.

To transfer money from your SASSA card to your bank account, visit any nearest SASSA office and request a change of payment method or bank account forms. Fill out the forms carefully with your ID documents and other particulars. SASSA will notify you when your request is granted, and you can start receiving your SASSA grants in your preferred bank account.

If you lost your SASSA card, you could visit your nearest SASSA office for a free replacement of your first lost card. However, if you need to replace the card more than once, you’ll have to pay a fee of R26.

Remember, you can withdraw your SASSA money from any ATM, including Capitec, Absa, Standard Bank, FNB, and more. You can also withdraw your money at selected supermarkets or use your card to purchase at stores like Shoprite and Checkers.

Can You Collect SASSA Money Without ID?

If you’re wondering whether collecting your SASSA grant without a valid South African ID or asylum seeker permit is possible, the answer is no. The South African Social Relief of Distress (SRD) grant is a temporary form of assistance provided by the government to eligible individuals who are experiencing financial distress. Individuals must meet specific eligibility criteria and provide identification documents to collect the SRD grant. During registration, individuals must provide their personal details, including their ID number or asylum seeker permit number.

This information is used to verify the individual’s eligibility for the grant. If you do not have a valid South African ID or asylum seeker permit, you will not be able to register for the SRD grant and, therefore, cannot collect it. A South African ID is vital for accessing government services and benefits and participating fully in society. Obtaining a South African ID should be a priority for all individuals living in South Africa.

At Which ATM Can I Withdraw SASSA?

Some central banks that offer SASSA grant withdrawals include Capitec, Absa, Standard Bank, FNB, and others. These banks have ATMs located in various towns and cities across South Africa, making accessing your grant easier.

To withdraw your SASSA grant, visit any of the banks mentioned above and locate an ATM labeled as a SASSA ATM. Follow the prompts on the screen, enter your PIN, and select the amount you wish to withdraw. You can also check your account balance at the ATM to keep track of your funds.
