SASSA News – SRD Grant Payment Schedule This Week
SASSA Updates – If you are a Sassa R350 SRD grant recipient who chose to pick up your grant payment at the post office, here is the payment schedule for the coming week.
Beneficiaries of the R350 Social Relief of Distress (SRD) award from the South African Social Security Agency are paid by the South African Post Office (Sassa).
Here are the 350 grant payment days for the next week of March.
These days will only apply to beneficiaries whose identity document number has the last three digits listed below:
- 11 APRIL: 083 & 088
- 12 APRIL: 084 & 089
- 13 APRIL: 080 & 085
- 14 APRIL: 081 & 086
- 15 APRIL: NO PAYMENT
Beneficiaries should note that there are no grant payments at the Post Office on weekends. Sassa also doesn’t process the R350 grant on days that other SASSA grants are paid out.
The Post Office has reminded beneficiaries to collect their grant payment only once they have received an SMS from Sassa, to say that their grant available.
There is no set payment date for SRD grant payments made to beneficiaries’ bank accounts. Beneficiaries can draw their money at an ATM at any time or place that is convenient to them. Sassa says that beneficiaries who make use of their bank accounts for their grant payments could see their money being processed faster.
Sassa introduced the Special Covid-19 R350 SRD grants in 2020 to provide financial assistance to individuals who were unemployed and could not take care of the needs of themselves and their families, due to the challenges brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic.
