Sources from SASSA indicates that they are aware of this problem and trying everything possible within their means to resolve it.

There might some factors leading to this, but common among them are the following conditions :

  • Those who are using ewallet as a form of payments or those who have switched from Post office to ewallet. According to SASSA, they have problems with the the partnered banks whose ewallet are being used.
  • If you have switched from one payment option to another after receiving your sassa srd grant in the previous payment option.
  • Wrong information can also lead to approved without pay dates. SASSA wants to make sure they make payments to qualified applicants and directly paid to the applicant only. In view of this, one cannot use other people’s personal information to collect one’s payments. Always, make sure your bank account name and account number are correctly entered and the name must be the same as on the ID documents.
  • SASSA has indicated that, they are overloaded with thousands of phone calls every day, thus one of the reasons why they are not able to attend to every customer inquiry.
  • They have however assured the recipients to bear with them as they work assiduously to resolve the problems and that all those applicants approved without pay dates will be paid.

Don’t know if anyone else has had this problem, I received my Aug R350 from there I haven’t received anything, approved with no date for Sept, Oct, and Nov, details has been the same since I applied in 2020 and always got my money no all of the sudden there is a problem, I have checked my bank details and ID and all is fine, so no I think the person working with our stuff is pocketing our little R350
