  2. Start the Cash Send process: Look for the “Cash Send” option on the ATM screen and select it.
  3. Enter your phone number: Type in the cellphone number you registered with SASSA. This is crucial, as it’s where they’ll send a special code.
  4. Wait for the SMS: In a few seconds, you’ll receive an SMS with a unique One-Time PIN (OTP). This is your secret code to unlock the money.
  5. Enter the OTP: Carefully type the OTP into the ATM keypad when prompted. Make sure you get it right!
  6. Choose your amount: The ATM will show your available balance. You can withdraw all of it or just part of it. Select the amount you want.
  7. Collect your cash: The ATM will dispense your chosen amount. Take your money, and don’t forget your receipt!

Important Tips:

  • Check the ATM: Before using it, quickly look around and make sure there are no suspicious people nearby.
  • Count your cash: Before leaving the ATM, count your money to make sure it’s correct.
  • Keep your receipt: It’s proof of your transaction and can be helpful if there are any issues later.
