April marks the last month for you to appeal so that you can have a second chance at the R350 grant. The grant officially comes to an end on 30 April, but payments do not.


Advocacy group the Black Sash has called on the South African government to advance with the implementation of the proposed basic income grant as soon as possible. This is so that the grant can help those who have become impoverished due to the Covid-19 lockdown. 


With SASSA introducing the Special Relief of Distress Grant which saw beneficiaries receive R350 per month, further calls have come for a basic income grant to be introduced outside of the R350 grant and to continue after the pandemic.


The level of unemployment amongst social work graduates is a major concern. Government now seeks to address this with social development Minister, Lindiwe Zulu, saying that more graduates will be absorbed into the system.

About 20% of applicants for the R350 SRD grant were rejected by SASSA due to being IRP5 registered, but what does this mean? Keep reading to find out.
