What Are the Benefits of the SASSA Gold Card

Let me tell you, switching to the SASSA Gold Card has been one of the best decisions I’ve made.

Before, I used to worry about getting to an ATM in time to withdraw my grant money, and the fees were eating away at my budget.

Now, I can just pop into my local Shoprite, swipe my card, and get my cash at the till – no extra charges!

Honestly, it’s not just about the money saved. Having that card gives me a sense of control.

I get a little statement in the mail showing me where my money’s gone, so I can plan my spending better.

Plus, I know it’s more secure than the old SASSA cards – no more worrying about someone getting a hold of my grant money.

Here are some of the key benefits:

  1. Free cash withdrawals at selected retailers: Withdraw funds at no cost from stores like Shoprite, Checkers, Pick n Pay, Boxer, etc.
  2. No monthly service charge: There’s no fee attached to maintaining your SASSA Gold Card account.
  3. Free 3-month bank statements: Track your spending and income easily to help with budgeting.
  4. Free balance inquiries: Check how much money remains in your account at any time.
  5. Purchase goods at stores: Use your card as a regular debit card for purchases at stores that accept bank cards.
  6. No deductions for airtime or loans: Your grant money is protected from unauthorized deductions.
  7. Secure chip and PIN system: Your card is protected against cloning and skimming fraud.
  8. Access to funds nationwide: Withdraw your grant from ATMs of any bank throughout South Africa.
  9. Uninterrupted grant payments: Ensure you continue receiving your support without the risk of expiring cards.
  10. Peace of mind: Knowing your grant money is accessible, safe, and can be managed more easily.
