Can I use another person’s account for the R350 grant if I do not have a bank account or a cellphone?
No, you cannot use another person's bank account or cellphone number for the R350 grant if you do not have your own bank account or cellphone number.
SASSA requires applicants to have their own bank account and cellphone number for the R350 grant payment to be made to them directly. This is to ensure that the grant payment is secure and goes to the intended recipient.
If you do not have a bank account or cellphone number, you can consider opening a bank account and obtaining a cellphone number. Many banks offer low-cost or no-cost accounts that may be suitable for receiving the R350 grant payment. You can also consider getting assistance from SASSA or other organisations that provide support to vulnerable individuals to obtain a bank account and a cellphone number.
It is important to note that using someone else's bank account or cellphone number for the R350 grant payment is considered fraud, and may result in legal consequences.
