More Points Now Available for SASSA SRD R350 Grants Payment
SASSA News on r350 Grant – Collecting your SASSA grant has just become easier as more points are opened for R350 grant collection. Millions of South Africans benefit from this grant which was created in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.
With over 10 million people benefitting from the SASSA Special Relief of Distress (SRD) grant, having more grant payment options would then make things much more convenient. Now, new points of collection have been announced.
The Shoprite Group has now made it possible for R350 grant holders to fetch their SRD grant payments at any of their 1 286 supermarkets across South Africa, which include Checkers, USave, OK and Shoprite stores.
A statement released by the group said:
Following the extension of the grant for another 12 months, customers can now access it at the till point in any Shoprite, Checkers, Usave and selected OK Foods supermarkets nationally.
They further said that this enables customers to receive their grant, buy essential groceries and pay their bills in a single location.
How should R350 grant beneficiaries go about fetching their grants at any of these stores?
You would need to provide your ID and cellphone number. Beneficiaries need to ensure that this must be the same cellphone number that they used to register on the SASSA database, as a confirmation pin will be sent to this number to prevent fraud.
Grants are available from this month for all customers who have already registered online or at the Post Office. In-store registrations are not available.
In February, President Cyril Ramaphosa announced that the SRD grant will be extended for another year until the end of March 2023.
