Social-grant beneficiaries will be paid as usual and on time after April and there will be no disruption, says the South African Security Agency (Sassa). The agency is due to take over the payment of social grants from Net1 subsidiary Cash Paymaster Services (CPS) from April 1 but questions have been raised about its readiness to do so. Sassa said on Thursday it would present its plans and address uncertainties in briefing the parliamentary social development committee next Wednesday. It said it had received expressions of concern about what would happen when the CPS contract expired at end-March, but beneficiaries had "no need to panic".
