THE SASSA SMART CARD  arrows


SASSA has developed a Smart Access and Debit Card that will serve as a “student card” for college and university students participating in the SASSA Programs and Services. The SASSA Smart Card will be able to achieve the following functions:

  • Provide students with access to programs and facilities;
  • Monitor, trace and track participation in activities
  • Communicate available opportunities to students
  • Store student database and general statistics

DEBIT CARD FUNCTIONALITY

 Most importantly the SASSA Smart Card will serve as a Debit Card for a variety of merchant transactions. SASSA has created “various wallets” within the SASSA Debit Card for the allocation of designated payments specific to the instruction of the funders.

For instances, the “accommodation wallet” will only be able to pay for accommodation rentals to an approved service provider. So will it be with the “catering wallet”, “transport wallet”, “books wallet”, and so on.
