SASSA Announced to Pay Double Grants in March Payment Dates

For those who missed out on January 2024 payments due to the SASSA Verification System glitch, here’s some good news. In March, beneficiaries can collect not only their current month’s grant but also the overdue January payment.

To ensure eligibility, citizens are encouraged to complete the SASSA Status Check for March 2024 to confirm the approved grants. If SASSA approved your March grant but you were previously unpaid for January, both month,s grants will be disbursed on the scheduled payment dates in March.

For those with a declined status in March but approved in January 2024, and yet to receive the January grant, worry not. You can now receive the overdue January Child Support Grant payment, though the declined March grant won’t be included. Conversely, if your January grant was declined but March is approved, you’re eligible for the March grant payment only.
