SASSA is able to transfer the payment directly to your own bank account, of choice. All you have to do is to request SASSA to do this by completing the Annexure C bank form authorizing SASSA to deposit their payment into your bank account. These funds are available from the first day of every month. You need to note that banks charge money when you use their ATMs, and this will be deducted from the money in your card. You can get the annexure C form at any SASSA office.
