You can check your SASSA grant balance and view recent transactions without needing any airtime or data, using these simple steps:

  1. Call SASSA Toll-Free – Use a phone to dial the SASSA toll-free balance enquiry line at 0800 60 10 11. This number works even without airtime on your phone.
  2. Enter ID Number – Follow the prompts and input your 13-digit South African ID number using your phone keypad.
  3. Listen to Balance – SASSA’s automated system will audibly state your current grant balance amount and read out your last few transactions.
  4. Write Details Down – Have a pen and paper ready to manually note down your available balance and any transaction details you need.
  5. Request SMS – While on the toll-free line, request an SMS with your balance details to be sent to your phone. SASSA has an agreement with cell networks to enable this free SMS service.
  6. Save Confirmation – When you receive the SMS with your grant balance, make sure to store it safely as confirmation of your balance for that day in 2024.

Using this simple USSD-free option, you can check your SASSA grant balance Anytime, Anywhere – without needing any airtime or data bundles.
