    What if I don’t have a cellphone number registered with SASSA?

    Unfortunately, if you don’t have a cellphone number linked to your SASSA application, you won’t be able to update your banking details online. In this case, you’ll need to visit a SASSA office in person to complete the update. Bring a valid ID and proof of your new FNB bank account (like a bank statement) when you visit the office.

    Will I receive a confirmation once my SASSA banking details are updated?

    No, SASSA doesn’t send out notifications once your banking details are updated. The best way to check is to monitor your FNB account balance for the next grant payment.

    How long will the change in my SASSA bank details take to reflect?

    This process might take about 30 days but there’s no specific timeframe provided. SASSA will need to verify the information you provide during the update.
