Please note that Payments for the new cycle of the Covid-19 SRD grant (from April 2022) will be paid as from mid-June 2022. Sassa will continue clearing outstanding payments from the previous cycle as and when the bank details are confirmed.
Meanwhile, back payments for the months of April and May would not be made in June but were likely to only be made in July — adding a fourth month of misery for over 8 million poor people waiting to receive their April grants and, for over 10 million beneficiaries, a third month to receive their May grants.
News update about SASSA New R350 Grants Payment Method
By now, everyone is aware that, the Post Office would no longer be a collection point for R350 grant payments. The Department of Social Development is now aiming to make more collection points available for beneficiaries.
As it stands now, grant payments for the Special Relief of Distress (SRD) grant can be paid through a bank account or collected at one of these stores: PicknPay, Boxer, Checkers, USave, Boxer and Shoprite.
With the Post Office no longer disbursing R350 grants, Sassa anticipated that there would be overcrowding in retail stores but has said that it would ease over time.
One reason for this is that Sassa is working on introducing more retail outlets as grant collection points.
Van Vrede, Chief Director of Social Assistance for the Department of Social Development said that Sassa has finished an agreement with SPAR to disburse grants with Pep and Spaza shops being next.
