Sassa grant beneficiaries are reminded that they do not need to collect their grants on the day their grant is to be paid. The grant payment will remain in the beneficiary's account until they choose to use it.
With this in mind, here is when beneficiaries can expect to receive their social grants in June:
Permanent Grant Payment Schedule For June 2023
- Older Person’s Grant: 2 June
- Disability Grant: 5 June
- Child Support Grant (and all other grants): 6 June
However, it is worth noting that, while the social relief of distress grant is also paid out on a monthly basis, Sassa does not have specified dates for payments of the R350 grant. The agency instead pays out the R350 grant once a beneficiary’s application has been approved.
The grant R350 collection date is usually confirmed when Sassa sends an SMS to the beneficiary indicating that the grant is available. Sassa has emphasized that the grant cannot be collected without the SMS, which makes it all the more important to have a valid cellphone number when applying.
Where to collect R350 grant payments
Fortunately, R350 grant beneficiaries have several options when it comes to collecting their grant payments. The grant can be accessed from any of the Sassa selected retail outlets such as Shoprite Checkers, U-save, Pick n Pay and Boxer stores.
Another highly recommended R350 grant collection is through your personal bank account. This option is made available to you during your application. You get to choose it as your preferred payment method by providing your banking details when applying.
In the event that you do not have a bank account you can also receive your R350 grant through a CashSend. For this, beneficiaries use their ID numbers and phone numbers to collect their grant. Having a registered cellphone number and proof of identity is essential for this option.
The Shoprite Group has now made it possible for R350 grant holders to fetch their SRD grant payments at any of their 1 286 supermarkets across South Africa, which includes Checkers, USave, OK and Shoprite stores.
This option also requires beneficiaries to provide a registered cellphone number and proof of identity, To find out more about Sassa grants, including the R350 grant, head to our Sassa section.
