All systems go as the SA Post Office takes over grants payments
The Post Office is expected to take over payment of beneficiaries from the South African Social Security Agency (Sassa).
The state entity is taking over from Cash Paymaster Services (CPS), whose contract officially expired end of September.
Chief Operations Officer at the SA Post Office Lindiwe Kwele says even though it is all systems go, not all the beneficiaries have the new Sapo card.
Remember this is a hybrid model so some beneficiaries have opted to have their private bank cards with the commercial banks.Lindiwe Kwele, Chief Operations Officer at the SA Post
She adds that the Sassa green rod cards are the ones that have been prioritised for migrating.
But any person can actually change from their private to the new gold Sassa Sapo card. So our preoccupation has been to migrate the Sassa green rod card to the new Sassa Sapo card.Lindiwe Kwele, Chief Operations Officer at the SA Post
She says to date they are sitting at about 6,9 million beneficiaries.
