Beneficiaries of the R350 grant who receive their SASSA grant payouts through the Post Office, a Boxer store or a PicknPay store are urged to wait for an SMS saying their grant is ready before they go out to collect.

SASSA has said that beneficiaries will receive their grants for the months that they qualify for, keeping in mind that patience is key when it comes to R350 grant payments.

Should you do a SASSA status check on your R350 grant application and it shows that it is approved with no paydate, it means payment has not been processed yet but will be.
