Latest News on SASSA R350 GrantAre you waiting to receive your R350 grant from Sassa via your bank account and wondering when the payments will be made? Well, here is what you need to know.

The South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) has stated that there is no fixed payment date for the special Covid-19 Social Relief of Distress (SRD) Grant, also known as the R350 grant.

Every month the agency verifies if beneficiaries are eligible for the grant by processing their personal details through a number of databases.

Once the process is complete, beneficiaries will receive a status that confirms their eligibility or a declined status. If they qualify for the grant, they will be paid for that month.

With regards to grants paid via bank accounts, there are no set payment dates. The agency has announced that these beneficiaries will receive the grants they are owed, however, a few delays are experienced.

The bank account provided by the applicant is also verified. However, the bank verification process does not have a set timeframe.

First, the applicant’s details are sent to the Department of Treasury and then to the applicant’s chosen bank. Once it is verified, it goes back to the Treasury and is handed over to Sassa for payment purposes.
