More than 9 million people benefit from the Social Relief of Distress (SRD) grant. The Post Office has now released the R350 grant payment dates for January.

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.

 

Here are the SRD payment dates for January 2022:

  • 10 January - 080 & 085
  • 11 January - 081 & 086
  • 12 January - 082 & 087

The post office does not distribute the SRD grant when other social grants are being distributed. These grants like the disability grant, older persons grant and the child support grant are normally distributed at the beginning of the month.

The post office has asked SRD grant recipients to only go to the post office after they have received an SMS informing them their money is available.

The grant was introduced during the Covid-19 pandemic to provide unemployed individuals with crucial support during the pandemic. A report commissioned by SASSA found that more than 90% of grant recipients used their grants to purchase food. The grant is expected to end in March 2022.

The SRD grant is distributed by the South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) on behalf of the Department of Social Development.
