The South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) says from now, beneficiaries of the COVID-19 grant will be able to receive their grants at the Post Office or via a bank account of their choice.
Spokesperson - Sandy Godlwana - says this follows challenges that have been reported, including the fact that
funds run out at the Post Office: "They can change from receiving their grant at a post office to a bank account of their choice or vice versa.
They also have the flexibility to move from one bank to another.
SASSA is opening its systems for approved citizens to update the channel through which payment should be made.
The development is a response to the challenges some beneficiaries have experienced in trying to access their special relief grant from post offices.
The challenge reported included long queues and the fact that funds run out at times."
