South African Social Security Agency assures beneficiaries that gold payment card is still valid

Mpumalanga South African Social Security Agency [SASSA] remind and assure beneficiaries that the gold payment card is still valid. The gold card remains active, even though there is an expiring date.

Beneficiaries must not panic or succumb to the hijacking by scammers and circulating fake news that the card will expire in April 2023.

SASSA is conveying a correct message that the payment gold card is still authentic and can be used either in Postbank, ATMs, and merchants. Beneficiaries are encouraged also to provide their private bank accounts to SASSA as another option of safe easy payment.

SASSA will in due course communicate changes if there are any. Fraudsters who pretend to be SASSA officials and target old age people and people living with disability in their residents must be immediately reported to the local SAPS.

For more information, contact SASSA toll free number: 0800 60 10 11 or customer care helpdesk at [013] 754 - 9428/9363 from 08:00 – 16:00 during week days Monday – Friday.
