The South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) will distribute the Social Relief of Distress (SRD) R350 grant until March 2022. This means that you can still apply for the grant or have your grant application reconsidered if your initial application was rejected.
Some SRD grant recipients may have cancelled their SRD grants. This could be for a number of unique reasons. One example is if you had an income and decided to cancel your SRD grant.
If you lost that income you will now be eligible to receive the SRD grant. The information below will provide you with a step by step guide on how to reinstate your R350 SRD grant.
