Why Your SRD R350 Grant Payment Is Delayed

SASSA R350 Payment being delayed for some beneficiaries is not a new issue, if your  SRD R350 Grant Payment Is Delayed, Read this article carefully.


Why Your SRD 350 Grant Payment Is Delayed

The South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) has declared that every approved Social Relief of Distress (SRD) grant application will be paid. However, many are yet to receive their money.

More than 10 million people have been approved for payment for the SRD grant. However, some grant applicants are unable to access their money.


Sassa explained that there are different reasons why various beneficiaries are delayed in payment.

Here Are Some Of The Possible Reasons Why Your SRD Grant Payment Is Being Delayed.

  1. Incorrect Name or Surname 

One of the steps taken by Sassa when considering your application is to verify your personal information. This includes your Identification (ID) number as well as your name and surname.


Sassa noted that clients may have gotten married over the course of the grant payment cycle. If information, like their surname, changed as a result of a marriage, this could delay or even prevent the payment of their SRD grant.

    2. Referred Link Risk Mobile.

Some SRD applicants meet all the eligibility requirements for the SRD grant. However if you receive a message with ‘Referred Link Risk Mobile’, that means a fraudulent application was received from the mobile number you applied with.

In order to clear this issue, applicants are required to contact the South African Fraud Prevention Services (SAFPS) immediately. Once the issue has been sorted, they may email with proof that they have cleared the problem.

     3. Beneficiary Of Other Support.

Another step in the SRD verification process includes checking your ID number against various databases. These databases include the South African Revenue Service (SARS), Unemployment Insurance Fund (UIF) and National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS).

If your ID number matches information with one of the above-mentioned databases, it may indicate that you’re benefiting from the UIF, NSFAS or that you are employed according to SARS.

If you disagree with the determination made by Sassa, you have the right to apply for reconsideration.

Sassa has advised grant applicants who have not been paid to contact them on their official Twitter page. To Visit Sassa’s Official Twitter Page CLICK HERE.
