Applicants of SASSA's Coivd-19 Social Relief of Distress Grant will still receive their payments once their application is approved.

The Social Relief of Distress Grant (SRD) was implemented at the beginning of the Covid-19 lockdown to assist poor people in looking after themselves and their families during the pandemic. 

The grant was extended until October of 2020 but, was then extended further to January 2021, and again to April 2021. 

Anyone who has applied more recently can be certain that, only if their application gets approved, they will receive their grant payment. 

SASSA has noticed that people who have not yet received their money are flocking to post offices in order to request their money, and this could possible result to a spread of Covid-19 in the offices. SASSA assures that no needs to come to the offices to receive payment. 

SASSA states that applicants that have not yet been approved and not yet been paid, can rest assured that once SASSA is given the approval of the application the applicant will receive payment as soon as possible. 

Even though the grant is said to come to an end soon, applicant who have not yet received money can expect to still receive payments after the grant ends. 

The payment will not necessarily be provided as a lump sum payment, or a double payment, but could be received over a number of days or even possibly weeks. 

SASSA has formally apologized to the unpaid applicants for any inconvenience or distress this may have caused. 

So applicants who have not yet been paid can expect to receive the grant as soon as they are approved.
