Predicted SRD Grant Payment Schedule For The Rest Of 2024


Millions of people have welcomed the extension of the SRD Grant. However, the people who rely on the grant don't yet know when they will be paid. 



The South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) has confirmed the extension of the Social Relief of Distress (SRD) grant distribution until at least March 2025, as announced by the Finance Minister during the 2024 Budget Speech.

Additionally, it was revealed that the SRD grant's value would increase from R350 to R370 in April 2024.

While this announcement provided much-needed relief for the millions of vulnerable beneficiaries, uncertainty remains regarding the timing of future payments.

Sassa has yet to confirm the SRD grant payment schedule for the remainder of 2024 and 2025. However, understanding Sassa's grant payment policy offers insight into potential payment dates.

Predicting SRD Grant Payment Dates

To anticipate SRD grant payment dates, it's crucial to note that Sassa does not disburse grants on weekends or public holidays.

Previously, SRD grant payments were typically made during the final week of each month, following various verification checks conducted by Sassa to assess applicant eligibility.
