Over 48% of recipients receive their monthly payments through Cash Pay points, retailers, SAPO Branches, and ATMs using the SASSA Gold Card. If your card has expired or is nearing its validity, it is crucial to ensure the timely renewal of your SASSA Card to continue receiving your funds.

We are here to assist you with the complete procedure for SASSA Card Renewal Online. Rest assured, if you have an expired SASSA Postbank Gold Card, you will continue to receive your grant money without any interruption until the end of March 2024 according to Dr Bongani Diaco who speaks from Post Bank.

SASSA Card Renewal

It is important to note that the South African Post Bank, responsible for issuing the SASSA Gold Card, has not yet introduced an online platform for SASSA card renewal. Therefore, you will need to visit a nearby Post Bank branch in person to initiate the card renewal process. To assist you in this procedure, we have provided the steps below.

  1. Visit your nearest South African Post Bank Office branch.
  2. Bring along your current SASSA card even if it is expired, and a valid form of identification (e.g. ID book, or smart ID card).
  3. Inform the Post Bank officials that you want to renew your SASSA card.
  4. They will assist you with the necessary paperwork and guide you through the renewal process.
  5. You will be handed a form that needs to be filled with the requested details.
  6. Submit your SASSA Card Renewal form and receive your receipt that is used to collect your new card.
  7. After your new SASSA card is issued, you will be notified to collect it from the Post Bank branch or Post Office (SAPO).
  8. You can now make sure to activate your new card following the provided instructions and protect your new card and PIN to keep your account safe.

From this point forward your renewed SASSA card lets you access your grant money through ATM withdrawals, bank deposits, retail stores, or the local SAPO post office. If required, you can switch your payment method by updating your details with Change Banking Details SASSA.

Important Notice: Postbank made it clear that the expired SASSA card remains valid until December 31st. This extension was put in place to prevent any delays or problems in the system, ensuring that beneficiaries can continue receiving their grants without disruptions.
