SRD Grant


Millions of vulnerable South Africans will continue receiving a vital support grant until 2025. This was revealed during the medium term budget policy statement on Wednesday. 

The Special Relief of Distress grant sees millions of beneficiaries receive R350 every month. If you applied to receive the grant in July 2023, it is important to keep track of your application status.

Almost 50% of the South African population relies on the various social grants that are administered on a monthly basis by the South African Social Security Agency. Some civil society groups have proposed that social grants receive an increase.


Qualifying unemployed individuals may apply for the Social Relief of Distress Grant online. Before individuals can be provided with the outcome of their social grant application, the grant goes through a number of processes.


The R350 grant is a necessity for millions of South Africans, especially after the pandemic. It has been discovered that while many are dependent on the grant, it has also led to stable employment. 

Unemployment and poverty have become one of the biggest challenges faced in South Africa. However, a new report reveals that strides are being made with regards to the implementation of a permanent support grant in the country.

The Social Relief of Distress (SRD) grant was implemented in 2020 to assist unemployed individuals with the impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic. Currently, more than 10 million people are benefiting from the grant.

Millions of South African citizens rely on monthly social grant payments from the government, especially the Social Relief of Distress grant as it allows them to access their most basic goods and services.
