2. Can I use another person’s account if I do not have a bank account neither a cell Phone?
** SASSA will not pay into a 3rd party bank account.
** Where an applicant does not have a bank account, he/she must indicate from the drop down list the nearest bank through which they want to be paid. Money will therefore be paid into the applicant’s cellphone number.
** Where an applicant does not have a bank account and does not have a cell phone registered in his/her name, the payment will be made through the post office.
