In the wake of a fortnight of distress for thousands of pensioners and other social grant recipients, Postbank has confirmed that all outstanding grant payments have been settled. The delay, which left numerous individuals without their expected monthly financial support, was attributed to technical glitches in the payment system.
Technical Glitches Resolved
Bongani Diako, a spokesperson for Postbank, has confirmed that the process of reversing funds into the accounts of all affected beneficiaries has been successfully completed. The bank has taken steps to ensure that the beneficiaries have access to their grants, bringing an end to a period of financial uncertainty for many.
“Postbank wishes to provide Sassa beneficiaries that were impacted by the payments issue of the 5th and the 6th that all payments have been made. The money is available in their accounts,” said Diako.
