Millions of South Africans collect their grants from the post office every month. The day you go to the post office depends on the grant you receive.
Once Sassa released the Social Relief of Distress (SRD) payment dates for March 2022, clients would have noticed that the Post Office will not be making SRD grant payments on Monday 21 March 2022.
Monday 21 March 2022 is Human Rights Day in South Africa. It is a public holiday to commemorate the events of the Sharpeville massacre which took place on 21 March 1960.
On that day, 69 people died and 180 were wounded when police fired on a peaceful crowd that had gathered in protest against the Pass laws
This means that there are only four SRD grant distribution dates for next week. The last three digits of your ID number determine on which days you may collect your SRD grant from the post office.
Here are the SRD payment dates for next week.
21 March: No Payment
22 March: ID numbers ending in 083 & 088
23 March: ID numbers ending in 084 & 089
24 March: ID numbers ending in 080 & 085
