If you are a beneficiary of the Sassa R350 SRD grant and have opted to collect your grant payment at the post office, here are the payment dates for the first week of may.
The South African Post Office distributes grant payments to beneficiaries of the R350 Social Relief of Distress (SRD) grant from the South African Social Security Agency (Sassa).
Here are the grant payment dates for the next week in May.
- 2 May: NO PAYMENT
- 3 May: NO PAYMENT
- 4 May: NO PAYMENT
- 5 May: NO PAYMENT
- 6 May: NO PAYMENT
There will be no SRD grant payments available for the first week of May as other regular SASSA grants will be paid out in this week.
However, beneficiaries will be able to fetch their SRD grant payments from 9 May 2022.
Beneficiaries should note that there are no grant payments at the Post Office on weekends. Sassa also doesn’t process the R350 grant on days that other SASSA grants are paid out.
The Post Office has reminded beneficiaries to collect their grant payment only once they have received an SMS from Sassa, to say that their grant available.
There is no set payment date for SRD grant payments made to beneficiaries’ bank accounts. Beneficiaries can draw their money at an ATM at any time or place that is convenient to them. Sassa says that beneficiaries who make use of their bank accounts for their grant payments could see their money being processed faster.
Sassa introduced the Special Covid-19 R350 SRD grants in 2020 to provide financial assistance to individuals who were unemployed and could not take care of the needs of themselves and their families, due to the challenges brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic.
