Step-By-Step Guide to Check Your Sassa Balance for R350

1. Check Your Balance Using Your Phone (USSD Method):

  • Step 1: On your mobile phone, open the dialer application where you usually type in numbers to make a call.
  • Step 2: Enter the USSD code *120*69277# and press the call button, just like making a regular phone call.
  • Step 3: A menu will appear on your screen. This is a step-by-step guide provided by your phone’s service. Follow these steps carefully. They will guide you on what to do next, usually asking you to reply with numbers corresponding to different options.
  • Step 4: You’ll be prompted to enter your personal details, such as your ID number and phone number. This is for security and verification purposes.
  • Step 5: After entering your details, wait a moment. You’ll receive a text message (SMS) showing your current SASSA balance.
  • Alternative USSD Code: If the first code doesn’t work, there’s another option. Repeat steps 1 to 5 using the USSD code *120*3210# instead.

2. Check Your Balance Online Using WhatsApp:

3. Check Your Balance at an ATM (for SASSA cardholders only):

  • Step 1: Visit an ATM with your SASSA card.
  • Step 2: Insert the SASSA card into the ATM slot.
  • Step 3: Enter your 4-digit PIN to access your account.
  • Step 4: Look for an option labelled “Account Balance” or something similar. Select this to proceed.
  • Step 5: Choose whether you want to view your balance on the screen or get a printed receipt.
  • Step 6: Follow the prompts to view or print your balance.

4. Visit Your Nearest SASSA Office or Post Office:

This is the most time-consuming option due to potential waiting times, but it’s still an option if the other methods are unavailable.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Your identification document (e.g., ID card, passport, driver’s license).
  • Your SASSA application ID (if you have it).
  • Go to your nearest SASSA office or Post Office.
  • Take a number and wait your turn to be seen by a SASSA representative.
  • Once you’re called, explain to the representative that you want to check your SASSA balance.
  • They will ask for your identification documents to verify your information.
  • Once verified, they will provide you with your current SASSA balance and any other relevant information about your application.

For each method, ensure you follow the steps in order and provide accurate information to avoid any errors.

Checking your balance through USSD or WhatsApp is quick and can be done from anywhere, making it highly convenient.

Visiting an ATM or SASSA office might take more time but is a reliable option for those who prefer in-person transactions.
