Find out How To Submit SASSA R350 Reapplication for the Covid-19 SRD grant which is extended for a year
People who were receiving the R350 social relief of distress (SRD) grant will have to reapply for it, the department of social development announced on Friday 22nd April 2022.
The department said during his 2022 state of nation address, President Cyril Ramaphosa announced that the Covid-19 SRD grant would be extended for a year from April 2022 to March 2023, “to ensure that no person in this country has to endure the pain and indignity of hunger”.
According to the announcement by the Department of Social Development which reads:
Given that the Covid-19 SRD will now be provided for under a new legislative framework, and that additional qualifying and assessment criteria will be added, those in need of assistance will have to apply for the Covid-19 SRD, or reapply if they were previously in receipt of this grant. Fortunately, the entire application system remains a purely digital process, thereby enabling quick access and turnaround times.
The application system will be opened at 12am on Saturday 23 April 2022.
Applications can be lodged either on the SASSA website at https://srd.sassa.gov.za. Further communication will be issued as more application channels are opened. All applicants are reminded that they will be considered for the Covid-19 SRD from the month in which the application is lodged and this will be validated every month. This means that all applications lodged in April will be considered as from April 2022.
