For those who chose to collect their SRD grants at the Post Office, you will only be allowed to collect your money on designated days.

These designated days are based on the last three digits of your ID number.

Here are the days on which grant beneficiaries can collect their SRD grants from the Post Office.

  • Tuesday,18 January: 081 & 086
  • Wednesday, 19 January: 082 & 087
  • Thursday, 20 January: 083 & 088
  • Friday, 21 January: 084 & 089

The Post Office has reminded beneficiaries of the SRD grant to wait for an SMS informing them that their money is available for collection. This will prevent beneficiaries from going to a post office branch only to be turned away.

Approved SRD grant beneficiaries can also collect their money from Pick n Pay and Boxer stores as well as having the money paid directly into their banking account. CLICK HERE TO READ MORE
