SASSA has made it clear that you do not need to re-apply or re-appeal for their social relief of distress grant of R350 per month if you have already done so.
The agency has emphasised that there is no fixed date for the payment of the grant. Applicants will be paid as long as they qualify.
Applications for those who have been approved will be reviewed on a monthly basis in order to verify that applicants still meet the requirements to qualify for the grant.
SASSA's CEO Totsie Memela has encouraged applicants to update their details online, if they have changed, to ensure that SASSA can contact them and to speed up the processing of their application.
By the end of March, applicants are encouraged to contact SASSA offices if they have not yet received their social grant payments.
SASSA applicants are urged to regularly check their application status in the event of no payment.
