Sassa grant alert
THE South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) yesterday said that it does not provide proof of payment to beneficiaries to apply for loans with the loan sharks.
“The agency is issuing this warning after numerous calls were received by the customer care unit, where beneficiaries are requesting proof of payment to apply for loans,” Sassa spokesperson Senzeni Ngubeni said.
“All social grants beneficiaries must be aware that they are not allowed to take loans and make payment with the social grant money.
“The social grant is not for luxury life but targets very poor households to alleviate poverty. It enables beneficiaries to purchase basic needs. – ANA
