You might find yourself wanting to update some of your details after applying for the R350 Social Relief of Distress (SRD) Grant. Here's how you can change your phone number. 

The phone number you use when applying for the grant is important, because SASSA uses it to communicate with you when your grant is ready for collection. 

If you no longer use the same phone number you provided when applying for the grant, you can follow these steps to change it in one of the following ways.

1. Call SASSA

SASSA has a Toll Free Call Centre that applicants can contact should they need assistance with updating their details.

- The call centre number is 0800 60 10 11
