Where To Collect Your SASSA R350 SRD Grant
There are a number of different channels that can be used to access the R350 SRD grants. Below is a list of the diffrent methods that you can use to get your grant in a way that is convenient for you.
SASSA allows for SRD grants paid directly into your bank account. This is the most convenient way for people to access their grants. They say that by providing SASSA with your banking details, your money will be processed faster. This will enable you to draw your money at an ATM at a time and place that is convenient to you.
SASSA spokesperson, Paseka Letsatsi said, “The good thing about having the money paid in your bank account is that you can get your money at any time, whereas if you get your money at the post office, unfortunately, you have to wait for certain days”.

The Post Office
Along with other social grants like the child support grant and the pensioners grant, the South African Post Office also distributes the R350 SRD grant.
If you opt to collect your SRD grant at the post office, you are encouraged to wait for an SMS confirming your money is available. This will save you from waiting in a queue at the post office only to be turned away.
Post Bank/Cash send Services
If you do not have a bank account, you may use the Post Office’s Post Bank Services. The Post Bank services allow grant beneficiaries to use their ID numbers and their unique cell phone numbers to access their grant.
You must have a cellphone with a registered cellphone number and proof of identification.
Pick N Pay or Boxer
You can also choose to collect your SRD grant at a PicknPay or a Boxer store. You must also wait for an SMS from SASSA confirming that your money is available. Only once you receive this SMS, will you be able to collect your money at either a Pick n Pay or Boxer store.
You will not be able to collect your grants at BP Pick n Pay Express, Pick n Pay Clothing and Pick n Pay Liquor stores.
SASSA said “there is no fixed payment date for the special COVID-19 SRD grant. Every month your application will be checked to verify if you still qualify for the grant. You will be paid each month, provided you still qualify for that month”.
