SASSA Confusion Continues

The issue of social grant payments has caused whirlwind confusion in SA, as worries persist that the most vulnerable citizens will be left stranded come 1 April.

Cash Paymaster Services (CPS), a subsidiary of US-based Net1 UEPS Technologies, will have the upper hand to negotiate for a bigger slice of the pie following an admission by social development minister Bathibile Dlamini that government is in talks to extend the current social grant payments contract.

Social grant payments are administered and distributed by CPS after it was awarded a five-year, R10 billion tender in January 2012.

The tender was declared invalid by the Constitutional Court (ConCourt) in 2013, and the South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) was ordered to initiate a new tender process for the payment of social grants.
