Swap your Sas­sa card

Suid-Kaap FORUM - - Voorblad -

WE­STERN CA­PE The old whi­te Sas­sa cards will be ful­ly pha­sed out by the end of Sep­tem­ber and be­ne­fi­ci­a­ries are ur­ged to swap to the new gold card be­fo­re 20 Sep­tem­ber to ma­ke su­re their grants are paid in­to the new card. T­he­re are mo­re than 14 000 be­ne­fi­ci­a­ries in the We­stern Ca­pe who still u­ses the old card. If your grant is paid in­to the old Sas­sa card af­ter 20 Sep­tem­ber, your mo­ney will ha­ve to be trans­fer­red from CPS to Pos­t­bank. That will de­lay the pay­ment of your grant. So­me post of­fi­ces in the We­stern Ca­pe can al­so do card swaps and Sas­sa be­ne­fi­ci­a­ries are in­vi­ted to co­me to swap their cards du­ring bu­si­ness hours. “It ta­kes on a­vera­ge on­ly four mi­nu­tes to com­ple­te the swap. All you need is your old Sas­sa card and an ID book or card,” says Sa­po’s C­hief O­pe­ra­ting Of­fi­cer, Lin­di­we K­we­le. The new Sas­sa card is an im­pro­vement on the old card and it does not al­low de­ducti­ons for t­hings such as air­ti­me, lo­ans or pre­paid e­lec­tri­ci­ty, a­mong ot­her t­hings. The on­ly de­ducti­on per­mit­ted is for fu­ne­ral po­li­cies, up to no mo­re than 10% of the grant va­lue.

Be­ne­fits of the new card

• Three free cash wit­h­dra­wals at points of sa­le • One free wit­h­dra­wal at the Post Of­fi­ce a month • Free swi­pes at points of sa­le, and • One free ATM ba­lan­ce in­qui­ry per month. It is accep­ted by all ATMs dis­playing the Vi­sa sign. Be­ne­fi­ci­a­ries who pre­fer to ha­ve their grant paid in­to their bank ac­count, can fill in an an­nexu­re C form at www.postof­fi­ce. co.za, ask their bank to stamp it and then hand it in at their ne­a­rest Sas­sa of­fi­ce. For mo­re in­for­ma­ti­on, be­ne­fi­ci­a­ries may con­tact the Sas­sa toll-free li­ne at 0800 60 10 11 or the We­stern Ca­pe call cen­t­re at 021 469 0253, or vi­sit the ne­a­rest Sas­sa of­fi­ce.
