In a typical situation, SASSA applicants receive two SMS notifications once their grant application is approved by SASSA.

  1. The first SMS informs you whether your application has been approved, is pending, or has been declined for the month.
  2. The second SMS notification directs you to either visit a Post Office or directly receive your grant money in your bank (Capitec or Standard Bank) to collect your monthly payment.

However, often the issue could be related to either a problem on your bank’s side or SASSA’s funding allocation, which can usually be resolved through communication with the customer support centre. Here’s what you can do:

  1. Start by contacting your bank to inquire about any system problems or account issues that might be causing the delay in receiving the approved grant SMS for payment collection.
  2. If the issue persists or your bank confirms that everything is fine on their end, then contact the SASSA helpline to consult further about the issue of not receiving the approved grant SMS for payment collection.

After following these steps, your issue should be resolved. If not, you will be provided with a reason for the problem. Many times, applicants may have changed their cell phone numbers or lost access to their registered numbers, resulting in the inability to receive SMS notifications.
