The South African Social Security Agency has urged citizens and beneficiaries not to believe wide-spreading messages encouraging people to apply for the R350 SRD grant. The grant is currently unavailable until further official notice of its reinstatement by Sassa.


We've been hearing talks about Government introducing a basic income grant for months now but has anything solid been said yet? Social Development Minister, Lindiwe Zulu, has already addressed the possibility of the grant.


SASSA beneficiaries might have seen a message circulating on social media which says that R350 grant payments will not be administered for three months. To find out what SASSA has said about this and where it comes from, keep reading.


The Pietermaritzburg Economic Justice and Dignity is calling on the government to reintroduce the special relief grant. It says the cost of the average household food basket has increased by over R270 in the past ten months.


Minister Lindiwe Zulu has said that SASSA will start staggering grant payments from today. She also said that discussions on extending the Special Relief of Distress grant continue.


Everyday, thousands of South Africans beg SASSA to pay their missing R350 grant payments. Meanwhile, R11 million went to those who work in Government and even prisoners.


With the new month starting, SASSA has now clarified when the different grants they administer will be paid for July. SASSA issues grants to vulnerable South Africans all over South Africa.


Every week there's a fake message floating around trying to scam SASSA beneficiaries. Now, SASSA has had to clarify whether news of an extension to the R350 grant is real or not.


Has your application for the R350 grant been denied and you really need the grant? You still have a second chance by appealing! Here's how appeals for SASSA's Special Relief of Distress grant works.


As we near the end of the month of June, it's important to know which dates your SASSA grants will be paid. We can help so keep reading to find out SASSA’s payments dates for grants in July 2021.


Now that applications for the R350 grant has closed and many calls have come for it to be extended, vulnerable South Africans are being taken advantage of. A message spread that SASSA has approved R700 payments which they have now clarified.


The South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) is warning beneficiaries to be alert and on the lookout for fraudsters who have come up with methods of scamming them of their payouts. From time to time you will find these criminals preying on vulnerable citizens.


Even though the R350 grant has come to an end, SRD grant payments still continue. Some of these payments are done through the Post Office. A number of Post Offices will be closed around the country which could affect SASSA grant beneficiaries.


Activist organisations are battling to secure meetings. The Covid-19 Social Relief of Distress Grant came to an end in April, but activists are calling for it to be extended.

SASSA has allocated billions of rands towards social grants for the 2021/22 financial year. Almost 100% of the department's budget goes to SASSA and the monthly payment of grants.


In Government's efforts to support the vulnerable during the pandemic, they have since issued R350s to millions of citizens needing financial assistance. There is now hope that a Basic Income Grant will be introduced as Minister Lindiwe Zulu gave some updates in her Budget Vote speech.


Many messages have been floating around about the R350 grant, especially as many beneficiaries have complained about missing payments. SASSA has now stepped up and set the record straight on R350 grant payments.


Have you applied for SASSA's Special Relief of Distress Grant, which we all call the R350 grant, but you were rejected? Here are possible reasons as to why your application was rejected and what to do about it.


The special grant for relief of distress during the Covid-19 pandemic will be R350 and paid on the 15th of May.  You can apply via Whatsapp on a dedicated number.
