More than half of the South African population is dependent on social grants to survive.

Efficient Group senior economist, Dr. Francois Stofberg, estimates 19 million are currently living off grants, additionally 1.5 million people lost jobs because of Covid-19 - bringing the total grant recipients to about 20.5 million.

Most SASSA grant recipients collect their grants from a post office. The last 3 digits of your ID number determine on which day you can collect your SRD grant. 

Prior to your visit to the post office, you ought to have an SMS stating when your R350 is ready to be withdrawn - it is a requirement.

In response to beneficiaries that have been approved, yet haven’t received payment - the agency says payments are underway, all qualifying applicants will receive their deserved grants.

There are people who have been complaining about appeals and reconsideration, this is what Sassa has said to address these concerns:

"Clients who applied for reconsideration are advised of the delay in addressing the reconsideration requests. SASSA is currently working to resolve this."
