SASSA Postbank
  • Clients using the SASSA PostBank Gold Card could not make withdrawals or transact at ATMs and various retailers (other than PostBank Points of Sale), even though SASSA had made payments for the clients accounts.

  • Clients can now enjoy the use of the SASSA/PostBank Gold cards to make withdrawals, purchases or payments.
  • The technical challenges only affected clients who were using the SASSA PostBank Gold Card.
