SASSA R350 Grant Payments Won't Be Made On These Days


The South African Post Office (SAPO) has notified R350 Social Relief of Distress (SRD) grant that some will not be paid next week.



The South African Post Office (SAPO) has notified beneficiaries of the R350 Social Relief of Distress (SRD) grant that some beneficiaries will not be paid next week.

For SRD grant beneficiaries collecting their money at a post office near them, the last three digits of their ID number determines the day they can collect their money.

However, due to the upcoming public holidays, some grant applicants will not be able to collect their grants next week. The Day of Reconciliation is a public holiday in South Africa that occurs every December 16th, meaning the post office will be closed. The post office will also not be distributing the SRD grants on 17 December 2021.

Here are the R350 grant payment dates for next week

13 December - 080 & 085
14 December - 081 & 086
15 December - 082 & 087

Some SRD grant recipients say they are used to waiting in long lines when collecting their grants at the post office. A grant recipient in KwaZulu Natal says that sometimes post office officials notify them at the end of the day that they won't be able to collect their grants.

They said, “it's unusual to be waiting for so long like this but we do wait. But today they're not even announcing to us to tell us to wait or go because... it could be four o'clock, they'll tell us to go. They're not even worried we ate or we have to walk”.

SRD grant beneficiaries have been given a number of different payment methods to choose from in order to receive their money. Beneficiaries can choose to receive their money in their personal bank accounts, collecting them at the Post Office, using the Post Bank/Cash Send Services or collecting the money at the Boxer of PicknPay store.

Grant recipients who collect their grants at a Boxer or PicknPay store, must wait for an sms confirming that their money is available. They must also take along their ID documents and cellphones when collecting the grant.
