SASSA provides various permanent grants, including Older Person grants, Disability grants, and Child Support grants. Additionally, a temporary R350 Social Relief of Distress (SRD) grant is available for unemployed individuals.

Application Process

Applications for permanent grants can be made in person or online, with the completion supervised by a SASSA official. For online applications, applicants receive a reference number for tracking purposes.

Tracking Your Application

Applicants can check their application status by contacting SASSA via phone or email, using the provided reference number or receipt.

Checking R350 Grant Status

R350 grant applicants can check their status online through the SASSA SRD grant website or via WhatsApp by sending a message with their ID number to the SASSA number.

Rejected Applications

If an application is rejected, applicants have the right to appeal. Appeals for R350 grants are now submitted to the Independent Tribunal For Social Assistance Appeals (ITSAA).

Receiving Grant Payments

Beneficiaries can receive grant payments directly into their bank accounts, through CashSend services, or at selected retail outlets.

Biometric Verification

SASSA has introduced biometric identity verification for some SRD grant beneficiaries, using facial recognition technology.

SASSA SRD Grants Approved Without Payout Date

SASSA SRD Grants Approved Without Payout Date. Millions of people have been approved for a R370 grant payment this month. However, not all of those approved for an SRD grant payment have a payment date.

The South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) has revised why approved Social Relief of Distress (SRD) grant beneficiaries do not have a payment date. Not having an SRD grant payment date essentially means they will not receive their R370 grant payment.

Reasons for Missing Payment Dates

Sassa said two main reasons could be behind beneficiaries not having a pay date. This includes incorrect or outdated information.

Missing or Incomplete Banking Information

SASSA grant applicants who haven’t provided any banking details on the SASSA SRD website will not be included in the scheduled payments.

Beneficiaries can rectify this by taking immediate action and updating their bank details on the website.

Postbank Account Request

Previously, Sassa offered to open Postbank accounts for beneficiaries. However, this service is no longer available.

SRD grant applicants who requested this option are advised to either open an account with Postbank themselves and update SASSA with the new details or open an account with a different bank and provide those details to Sassa for SASSA  payment processing.

Cash Send Payment Issues

Beneficiaries who opted for cash send/mobile money payouts and haven’t received their grant might be facing a verification challenge.

SASSA requires beneficiaries’ ID numbers and cellphone numbers to match. Not providing a valid cellphone number will result in delayed R370 grant payments. Beneficiaries are encouraged to provide alternative banking details to facilitate a smooth transfer of the grant amount.

Still No Pay Date For SRD Grant?

Beneficiaries who are approved but haven’t received a payment date and fall outside of the categories mentioned above are encouraged to contact the Sassa Customer Care Call Centre at 0800 60 10 11 for further assistance and investigation.

Conclusion

While the approval of the SRD grant brings relief to many individuals and families in need, the absence of a payment date can be concerning. By understanding the reasons behind this issue and taking proactive steps to update information or seek assistance from Sassa.
