THE SOUTH African Social Security Agency (Sassa) has warned people to be cautious about reports that they are changing all social grant beneficiary cards with immediate effect.

A Sassa spokesperson, Sandy Godlwana, said these reports are not true.

She said social grant beneficiaries need to be wary of criminals posing as Sassa employees visiting communities and coercing them to change their Sassa cards.

“Sassa is not embarking on a campaign to change beneficiaries’ cards, and under no circumstances will Sassa officials visit households to change beneficiaries’ cards.

“Sassa urges all beneficiaries to not co-operate with anybody who requests to change their cards, and instead report incidents directly to the police,” she said.

Godlwana urged people to exercise caution and not to be duped by hoax messages and to always keep their social grant payment card pins confidential.
