Those receiving any grants at waypoints are advised to create a PIN when they collect their grants during the July 2022 payment. This will mean they can then use their SASSA card to withdraw money at the ATM and at supermarkets. Funds can be accessed on any day during and after the payment without having to go to the paypoint on the specified date. The money will also remain on the card, there is no need to withdraw the full amount at once. You can choose to use the card to pay for items at supermarkets as well instead of withdrawing as cash.
