Extra charges on pension?

2017-02-01 06:01

I AM aware of a number of recipients of Government Pension Grants (Previously “Old Age Pensions) who are not receiving their full monthly payment of R1500.

I make withdrawls at an ABSA ATM, usually after the 1st of the month rush and have been assured by ABSA that they do NOT charge for the service.

At the end of October last year I had one cent left and on 1 November when I checked my balance it was R1484.26 a shortfall of R15.75.

So far, I have lost R35.45 but never a standard amount.

Friends of mine have lost far larger amounts.

Is there anybody out there who has the same experience and has found the solution to the problem.
