The South African Social Security Agency has confirmed that applicants of the COVID-19 SRD Grant may have their grant payments deposited directly into their bank accounts as it is more convenient and prevents overcrowding at post offices.

Beneficiaries are allowed to change their payment method between 3 and 10 September, while other social support grants are being paid.

The agency also reminds applicants that they may only change their payment method during the first week of every month.

Approved applicants are reminded that the post office does not pay SRD grants during the time set aside for normal social support grants such as old age, disability and children’s grants.

In August 2021 when the systems opened for the SRD Grant, the agency received approximately 11 237 724 applications.

Despite the high number of applicants, the agency was able to pay approved clients, while continuing to verify the remaining applicants.

Caregivers who also receive child grants and have been approved for the R350 grant may receive their payments using their SASSA payment card.

These clients who have received the R350 grant on their SASSA card are reminded not to collect their money at the post office but to withdraw their money at bank ATMs or merchants.
