SASSA Grant Payment Dates For April

SASSA distributes grants to poor and vulnerable South Africans. Now that a new month is about to begin, it's good to know the payment dates for the different grants. Here's the payment dates for April.



Now that March is coming to an end and Aprilis upon us, SASSA has announced the dates for beneficiaries to get paid for April 2021. SASSA issues grants to vulnerable South Africans all over.

The South African Social Agency (SASSA) released the various payment dates for the month of April 2021, they are as follows:

  • Older Person's Grants 6 April 2021
    • This includes any grants linked to these accounts
  • Disability Grants 7 April 2021
    • This includes any grants linked to these accounts
  • Foster Care Grants 8 April 2021
  • Care Dependency Grants 8 April 2021
  • Child Support Grants 8 April 2021

This month is the last month applications will be open for the Special Relief of Distress Grant (SRD) which sees beneficiaries get R350 every month.

Payments are still currently in progress. So, those who haven't been paid yet need not worry as they will receive their payment and still get their coming months payments again if they still qualify. 

SASSA has not provided a date for when payments will stop. Due to this, should you be approved you will then receive payments from that month. 

R350 grant appeals will also come to an end at the end of April. This is a mechanism for those who were rejected from receiving the grant and feel this was unfair.
