Approved for the R350 grant? Here’s when you can collect your payment in December
Beneficiaries of the R350 Covid-19 social relief of distress (SRD) grant can expect to receive their payments from December 6, after the disbursement of the disability and elderly grants.
The SA Social Security Agency (Sassa) said older person’s grants will be paid from December 1 and disability grants from December 2. This includes other grant payments linked to these beneficiaries.
Other grants will be paid from December 3, but this excludes the SRD grant, which will only disburse payments from December 6.
Each beneficiary is assigned a payment date depending on their ID number.
The dates below are applicable to the SA Post Office payout system. Beneficiaries can receive their grants as soon as they receive confirmation of payment from Sassa.
