Many applicants have been approved for the SASSA COVID-19 grant, however, even though the grant has ended, they are still waiting on their payments.
The South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) has announced that payments are underway and that those who have been approved will still get paid.
SASSA said the following on social media:
Payments are underway, all applications which have been approved and who have not yet received the money will still be paid.
If you applied before 30 April but you're waiting for feedback, if you're approved or have already been, you will then still receive payments backdated from the month you applied. Payments will however only be made for the month of April or earlier.
Applicants are encouraged to keep an eye on their appeal status by following the steps below:
