How to Change Your Sassa R370 Payment Method to Pick N Pay

Before the May payment, I decided to switch my payment method to Pick n Pay for convenience.

It was surprisingly simple! I logged onto the SRD website, entered my details, and received a special link via SMS.

This link led me to a secure page where I chose Pick n Pay as my new method.

A confirmation SMS sealed the deal, and now I’m eagerly awaiting my next payment at my local store.

If you’re looking to make the same change, below is how you can do it yourself.

Step-by-Step Guide to Change Your Banking Details For Sassa R370 to Pick N Pay

1. Prepare Your Information

ID Number: This is your unique South African identification number.

It’s essential for SASSA to verify your identity and ensure you’re the rightful recipient of the grant.

Cell Phone Number: This should be the same number you used when applying for the SASSA R350 grant.

SASSA will send you important SMS messages with links and instructions, so ensure this number is active and accessible.

2. Access the SASSA SRD Website

Open your web browser and go to the official SASSA Social Relief of Distress (SRD) grant website:

This is the secure platform where you’ll make changes to your payment information.

3. Locate the Banking Details Section

The website might have changed slightly, but you’ll typically find a section related to “How do I change my banking details?” or a similar option.

This is the section you need to access to update your payment preferences.

4. Input Your Personal Details

Once you click on the relevant link, you’ll be taken to a form where you’ll enter your ID number and the cell phone number associated with your SASSA application.

Double-check for accuracy to avoid any delays or errors.

5. Await the SMS Link

After submitting your details, SASSA will send an SMS to your registered cell phone number.

This message will contain a special link that’s specifically generated for you.

This link is a crucial part of the process and acts as a secure way to access your payment options.

6. Access the Secure Page

Click the Link: Open the SMS and click on the link within it.

Your phone’s web browser will open and take you directly to a secure page on the SASSA website.

This page is designed to safeguard your information during the payment change process.

7. Select Pick n Pay

On the secure page, you’ll see a list of available payment methods. Look for and select “Pick n Pay.”

This tells SASSA that you want your R350 grant to be sent to your nearest Pick n Pay store for collection.

8. Finalize Your Choice

Review your selection to make sure you’ve chosen Pick n Pay correctly.

Then, click on “Submit” or “Confirm” to finalize your decision.

This action initiates the process of updating your payment details within the SASSA system.

9. Receive Confirmation

SASSA will process your request, and you’ll receive another SMS confirming that your payment method has been successfully changed to Pick n Pay.

This confirmation is important as it signifies that your request has been processed correctly.

Key Considerations

Confidentiality: Never share your ID number, cell phone number, or unique link with anyone.

These are sensitive pieces of information that should be kept confidential to prevent unauthorized access or fraud.

Time Sensitivity: The link you receive in the SMS has a limited lifespan and will expire after a certain period.

Therefore, act promptly and complete the payment change process as soon as you receive the message.

Payment Dates: After successfully changing your payment method, check the SASSA website or your SMS messages for information about when your grant will be available for collection at Pick n Pay.

This information is crucial to ensure a smooth collection process.
