Transfer Your SASSA Payments to Capitec Bank in 5 Easy Steps

Are you getting SASSA money on a card but want it in your Capitec bank account instead? Don’t worry! We’ll show you how to do this step by step. It’s not hard, but you need to follow some important rules.

Why Change to Capitec?

Moving your SASSA grant to Capitec has some good points:

  1. It’s easier to use your money.
  2. Your money goes straight to your bank.
  3. You don’t need to go to ATMs as much.
  4. Your money is safer in a bank account.
  5. You can use online banking to check your money.

What You Need to Know First

Before we start, here are some important things:

  1. You can’t just move money from your SASSA card to Capitec.
  2. You need to tell SASSA to send your money to Capitec from now on.
  3. This takes some time and paperwork.
  4. You’ll need to go to a SASSA office in person.

Steps to Change from SASSA Card to Capitec Account

Let’s go through this step by step:

Step 1: Get the Right Form

First, you need a special form called Annexure C. You can:

  • Download it from the SASSA website
  • Get it at a SASSA office

Step 2: Fill Out the Form

On this form, write down:

  • Your name, ID number, and where you live
  • Your Capitec account number and branch code
  • Any other info the form asks for

Be very careful! Write everything correctly. If you make a mistake, it could slow things down.

Step 3: Visit Capitec

Take your filled-out form to any Capitec bank. Ask them to:

  • Sign the form
  • Put the bank’s stamp on it

This shows SASSA that your Capitec info is right.

Step 4: Go to SASSA

Now, take your form to a SASSA office. You need to:

  • Give them the form
  • Let them take your fingerprints
  • Show your ID

Step 5: Wait for SASSA to Say Yes

SASSA will look at your form. If everything is okay, they’ll change where your money goes. This might take a few weeks, so be patient.

Important Tips

Here are some things to remember:

  • Only use the real SASSA form. Don’t use copies or forms from other places.
  • Fill out the form carefully. Check it many times.
  • Make sure Capitec signs and stamps your form.
  • You must go to SASSA in person. You can’t do this online.
  • Keep a copy of your form at home, just in case.
  • It might take a few weeks for SASSA to change things. Don’t worry if it’s not fast.

What to Do If You Have Problems

If something goes wrong:

  1. Call SASSA at 0800 60 10 11
  2. Go to a SASSA office and ask for help
  3. Check if you filled out the form right
  4. Ask Capitec if your account is working okay
