Confirmed: Sassa May SRD Grant Payment Dates


Sassa has finally confirmed the SRD grant payment dates for May 2024. SRD grant applicants who were approved for payment are set to receive their money this week. 



The South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) has released the much-anticipated payment dates for the Social Relief of Distress (SRD) grant in May 2024. This information is crucial for millions of South Africans who rely on this financial assistance.

May 2024 SRD Grant Payment Dates

Sassa confirmed that approved SRD grant applicants will receive their payments between Monday, 27 May 2024, and Friday, 31 May 2024.

It's important to be aware that after Sassa processes your grant, it might take an additional 2-3 business days for the funds to appear in your bank account.

Checking Your Application Status for Specific Payment Date

To effectively manage your finances, Sassa recommends that everyone who applied for the SRD grant check their application status on the official Sassa website. This will provide you with your specific payment date.

Clients are encouraged to view their status on the SRD website for the exact date that payment will reflect in their bank accounts 

Ensuring Uninterrupted Payments During Transition

Social Development Minister Lindiwe Zulu previously announced the implementation of Section 6C of the Social Assistance Act. This section functions as a temporary measure to bridge the gap to a new system, guaranteeing uninterrupted payments for existing beneficiaries until May 2024.

To ensure uninterrupted assessments and payments made during the transition between the Regulations published on 29 March 2023 under Notice No: and these Amendment Regulations, the Agency may use data used during the March 2024 assessment cycle, in terms of regulation 2, for continued assessments of clients up to 31 May 2024 

This decision by Sassa is crucial in maintaining a smooth transition and continued financial support for those who qualify for the SRD grant.

Increased Grant Amount for May 2024

Following the announcement by Finance Minister Enoch Godongwana in March 2024, the SRD grant amount has been increased to R370. This means that approved applicants for the May 2024 SRD grant will receive the higher amount of R370.
