Payment Dates and Increased Grant Amount

Do A Sassa SRD Status Check 

To plan your finances effectively, Sassa encourages everyone who applied for the SRD grant to check their application status on the official Sassa website. This will inform you if your application for the SRD grant has been approved and will provide you with your specific payment date 

Ensuring Uninterrupted SRD Grant Payments

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

To avoid any disruptions in receiving their grants, Sassa will be utilising assessment data from March 2024 to determine eligibility for May payments. This means that individuals who were approved in March can expect to receive their increased R370 grant in May.

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