Where To Collect Your April 2023 Srd Grant
Over the past few days, the South African Social Security Agency has primarily focused on paying out permanent social grants. It is still the agency’s responsibility to make sure that recipients of the R350 grant receive their grants as well.
R350 grants aren’t paid on the same day as social grants
Especially since R350 grants aren’t paid on the same day as social grants. Today marks the last day for payments of social grants. The R350 grant beneficiaries can collect their grant payment via ATM at selected stores such as Shoprite Checkers, U-Save, Pick n Pay and Boxer.
Additionally, Sassa reminds this group of grant recipients that R350 grant payments have no set dates. Upon processing each online application, the agency pays out these grant payments.
Applicants must always wait for SMS confirmation before collecting grant payments. When the R350 grant application process is complete, it is important to make sure the details you provided are accurate and up-to-date. You may experience delays in receiving your R350 grant if you fail to do this.
As a result, the agency will verify your eligibility status with third parties such as Home Affairs, SARS, and the UIF using the information you have provided. Your grant payment may be delayed if you provide inaccurate information, as mentioned above.
As per government’s response to the Covid-19 Pandemic, the Sassa R350 grant was introduced in 2020 to assist those most vulnerable to its effects. With its recent extension set to expire in March 2024, it is currently in its third cycle.
Around 8 million people nationwide depend on the R350 grant to afford their necessities, and there have been calls for it to be kept and possibly increased, based on the country’s ability to fund it for the long term.
