NSFAS Wallet

Your NSFAS Wallet will allow you to withdraw cash and/or spend at any merchant registered by NSFAS. Allowance amounts are determined through consultation with institutions, communicated to NSFAS when you register.


When your NSFAS Wallet account is created by NSFAS, you will receive a “Welcome” SMS advising you to verify your account.

Ensure at ALL times that you have access to the cell phone number you provided to NSFAS upon application, as this is the number we will use to deposit your funds.

Should you wish to withdraw cash, you may do so at any of our cash withdrawal merchants, Checkers, Boxer, U-Save and select Spar stores. Note that these stores have daily cash withdrawal limits from R200 – R1000 per day.

Spending at a registered store has no limit i.e. you can spend up to the maximum value of your cash wallet.
