In today’s Sassa News – The South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) has stated that beneficiaries of the R350 Social Relief of Distress grant should expect to receive their August grant payments as they are being paid now. Sassa is experiencing delays in R350 Social Relief in Distress (SRD) grant payments to beneficiaries due to their new digital systems.

Sassa says these delays were caused by changes in regulations and that they are working hard to resolve these issues as quickly as possible.

Sassa has now stated that beneficiaries can collect their August payments which were released on 21 September 2022. According to the tweet, the payment will be made by cash-in-hand and so beneficiaries should meet with an agent near them.

SASSA offer beneficiaries the option of receiving grant payments directly from their bank accounts or collecting their grant payments from selected stores;

  • Checkers
  • Usave
  • Shoprite 
  • Pick ‘n Pay
  • Boxer

Sassa is reminding all DSP beneficiaries that they are able to collect their grant payments from any of our retail outlets or Sassa-accredited vendors. Beneficiaries should only visit these stores to collect their grants after they have received an SMS from Sassa which states that the grants are available.

As a beneficiary, you do not have to collect your grant on the date when it becomes available. The money will remain in your account until you need it!

The Sassa R350 grant recipients who have opted to use their bank accounts to receive their grant payments have been encouraged to check if the bank details that they provided in their application for the grant are correct. If not, this could cause delays in receiving the funds.

The Sassa R350 grant payment is not paid on a set date, meaning that beneficiaries can access their money whenever they like. However, Sassa has encouraged beneficiaries to choose the bank account payment method as this would enable them to access their R350 grant from anywhere.

In order to avoid any delays in your grant payments, please ensure that your contact information is updated on your R350 grant application.
