If you receive grants from SASSA , then keep reading to find out when you can expect to receive your payments in August.
Beneficiaries of permanent grants can expect to receive payments on these dates:
- Old persons - 3 August 2021
- Disability grants - 4 August 2021
- Children's grants - 5 August 2021
There is no set payment date for the temporary R350 grant. Beneficiaries of this grant will receive payments when they are informed by SASSA.
"There is no set date for R350 SRD payments. We will back-date all the months due to you” explained SASSA.
In more recent news, SASSA will be reintroducing the R350 grant soon. On Wednesday afternoon, Finance Minister Tito Mboweni held a media address to give more details about this grant as well as other measurements government has put in place to give South Africans aid.
Deputy Director General of Public Finance, Dr Mampho Modise said the newly introduced grant will not be picking up where the previous grant left off.
This means no back payments will be made for the months that the old grant was not active. Applicants for the new grant will also have to follow a new application process.
“The R350 is not an extension of the previous grant that was introduced and terminated in May. Rather, it’s a reintroduction of the grant and it will commence right now rather than a continuation of what we’ve done in the past”
“This is a starting point rather than backpaying for the months that the grant was not in existence.” explained Modise.
More details about the grant and application process have not yet been released.
