About January Outstanding  2024 Grant Payments 

In January 2024, Sassa suspended the grant payments of more than 150,000 grant beneficiaries. 

Sassa explained that the non-payment of 150,000 social grants stemmed from inconsistencies in grant beneficiary details. These discrepancies include mismatched ID numbers with bank records, inaccurate banking details, and alterations in grant payment methods.

  • The Auditor General (AG) promptly brought attention to this issue, prompting us to make a decisive decision to ensure that the correct grant is disbursed to the rightful recipients.
  • To prevent individuals from erroneously receiving grants, the agency took the step of suspending these grant payments.
  • Sassa said if a beneficiary did not receive their January 2024 grant payment and is found to be eligible for a grant payment; they will be paid during the February payment run.
  • It was confirmed that they will receive a double grant payment, their outstanding January 2024 grant payment and their February 2024 grant payment. 

SRD Grant

Those between the ages of 18 and 60 who are South African citizens, asylum seekers, refugees, and holders of special permits are eligible for the Social Relief Distress Grant (SRD). This award is for a monthly payment of R350.

Grants for the elderly, disabled, child support, and other categories are paid on schedule each month by SASSA.
