Sassa R350 grant beneficiaries no longer have to wait 30 days before they can withdraw their grant money, which was a requirement previously in place. Millions of people rely on the Social Relief of Distress (SRD) grant monthly to purchase essential goods. One requirement that previously limited to those who had bank accounts, which meant many people did not qualify.

The South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) recently announced that Social Relief of Distress (SRD) grant applicants will not need to reconfirm their grant applications every three months.

This means that applicants can apply once and their SRD grant applications will be considered every month the grant is available.

Sassa said, “Due to amended regulations clients do not need to resubmit responses to screening questions.”

Sassa rolled out Sassa R350 grant plans for beneficiaries, but the previous requirement for SRD grant applicants to reconfirm their grants every three months meant that some individuals missed out on receiving their July 2022 grant payment.

Due to the SASSASA R350 Grant regulation, everyone who applied for the grant in April 2022 had to reconfirm their applications for July 2022. SRD is a government health grant aimed at providing essential health care to South Africans who have smaller incomes. Three months had passed since their original applications.

“The assessment for July 2022 had some delays because the previous regulations required people to reconfirm their grant every three months. June 2022 was the third month from April and many people failed to reconfirm their grants” explained the DSD.

Sassa has asked beneficiaries to provide their correct bank details before the end of next week. This is because any errors made when submitting banking account information could result in your SRD grant not being paid.
