The extension of the R350 grant has given much needed relief to beneficiaries. The President announced the extension in January, but applications will soon close.
Extended applications for the R350 grant will close on 30 April 2021.
You can apply for the R350 grant in one of the following ways:
- SRD Website: https://srd.sassa.gov.za/
- Email: [email protected]
- WhatsApp: 082 046 8553
- USSD: *134*7737#
If you have already applied for the grant, you do not need to reapply. SASSA has been working closely with the South African Post Office (SAPO) to ensure that all beneficiaries receive payments.
SAPO has confirmed that there is no fixed date for the grant, and the funds do not expire.
"Beneficiaries should also know that there is no deadline for them to collect their grant from the Post Office. The funds that are waiting for them do not expire and they can collect it later if it suits them."
“Each day of the week is reserved for different beneficiaries depending on the last three digits of their ID numbers. Since 22 March is a public holiday, the days move one day forward after that.”
08 March : 083 & 088
15 March : 083 & 088
22 March : No Payment
29 March : 082 & 087
Grant beneficiaries who have any questions can call SASSA on 0800 60 10 11 from 08:00 to 16:00, Monday to Friday.
