Once you've submitted your application for SASSA's R350 Social Relief Of Distress (SRD) grant, you can track it on Whatsapp. This one of the few platforms that SASSA has given applicants as an option to track the progress of their applications.

The South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) found over 30 000 people had improperly benefited from the R350 grant. Sassa began processing payments of the special Covid-19 R350 SRD grant last week.

South African Post Office

The South African Post Office (SAPO) has told Sassa grant recipients to not pay for a place at the front of the line at the post office. This is illegal and if anybody asks you for payment to jump the queue, you should not give them any money.
