Sassa status check SRD Grant Reconfirmation

Sassa is concerned about the misinformation that has been circulating on social media about the R350 grant.

The South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) has warned its Social Relief of Distress (SRD) beneficiaries against misinformation that has recently been circulating on social media.

A post doing the rounds on Facebook and WhatsApp instructs beneficiaries to reconfirm their SRD grant applications with an ultimatum that if they do not, they will be considered ineligible for the R350 grant.

The South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) said that it has received several complaints from its Social Relief of Distress (SRD) beneficiaries about the misinformation that is circulating on social media.

The Social Relief of Distress Grant (SRD) is a monthly cash grant which provides financial relief to indigent people who are in need of social relief. The SRD grant is currently in its third cycle and is due to conclude in March 2023.

The SRD grant was launched by former President Jacob Zuma on 1 January 2019 at the launch of his autobiography ‘Unshackled: My Journey Outside the Matrix’. The programme was aimed at alleviating poverty among South Africans by providing them with an income support system that would complement existing welfare grants such as Social Security Agency (Sassa), Child Support Grant (CSG) and Old Age Pension (OAP).

Sassa has said that it will continue providing support for those who qualify for the grants until 2023 when it will be replaced by a new social protection scheme called National Social Security Fund (NSSF).
