How to transfer money from a SASSA card to Capitec Bank? Can it be done online or should I visit the SASSA office? If these or similar questions brought you here today then good for you because you are about to get them answered!
It is absolutely possible to transfer your money from a SASSA card to Capitec. However, it involves an extensive procedure which is unfortunately the only way of doing it. But don’t worry, I will walk you through the steps in the following article.
Getting SASSA Amount Send Directly To Capitec
If you don’t want to be bothered with having to learn and get used to other less convenient methods of withdrawing money from your SASSA account, you may have it sent directly to your own bank account. However, there are certain steps that you will have to follow in order to achieve that because it does not happen auto automatically.
So, first of all, you need to fill out and submit the SASSA annexure C (Blank Form), formally requesting to transfer all your future payments directly into your own bank account. And if you are wondering where you can get this form, you can easily obtain it from the SASSA office or download it from their official website.
However, there is one thing that you need to be very mindful of if you want SASSA to consider your request at all. And that is you must personally submit your form physically to the SASSA office. In simple words, you can not submit it online.
The reason why you can not possibly get through with this procedure online is that it involves biometric information. You will have to sign a few documents and provide your thumbprints in order to change your payment withdrawal method.
So, no matter how you obtain your form, you will have to get it printed out and filled out by hand. After that, you will have to take the form to Capitec Bank and ask them to fill out the rest of the form intended to be filled out by the bank. Once you are through this drill, you can take it to the SASSA office and submit it in your name.
Furthermore, you must also keep in mind that the processing of your application may take some time. But rest assured that by the end of it, your money will be sent directly into your bank account every month.
How To Change Banking Details?
If you are thinking about changing your banking details at SASSA then you will have to go through a dedicated procedure. Don’t worry, you can do it online without visiting their office.
So, to start off, you need to visit their official website. Then, go to the “South African ID Holder” section. Once there, you will see a list of myriad options.
Scroll down and click on the option saying “How do I change my banking details”. They will require your ID number and wait for a few minutes to receive a message from SASSA. In this message, you will receive a link.
Open this link and provide all the information asked of you. Once you are down, click on “Submit” to finalize your request for a change of your bank details.
However, there is one thing that you must keep in mind while changing your bank details. Please, do not make the mistake of providing someone else’s bank details because that will render your grant null and void. This is because SASSA can not send your payments to a bank account that is not in your own name.
So, this was all from my side and I hope you all found this article very helpful. I tried my best to provide you with literally all the information relating to transferring your SASSA payouts from card to Capitec. In fact, I also sprinkled some dire warnings in between to remind and enlighten you of the things you must avoid doing while you are at it.
In any case, I would like to bring this discussion to an end by summarizing the contents of this article. If you want to change your payment method, you will have to personally submit the Annexure C form at the SASSA office due to the extensive biometric information required to confirm this process.
