social relief of distress grant


Equal education released a statement urging the government to acknowledge its role in creating the social crisis in the country. The organisation has asked that the government urgently provide social relief, including reinstating the COVID-19 SRD Grant.


SASSA says they are working to resolve the delay of R350 grant payments after apologizing for the second time. Though they only state that payments will be made soon, South African citizens who rely on the grant are becoming aggravated by the delay.


Unpaid applicants of the Covid-19 Social Relief of Distress Grant could still receive payments once their applications are approved. SASSA says, they will pay approved applicant as soon as a confirmation of the applications approval has been received.


Lindiwe Zulu, the Minister of Social Development, announced that SASSA has decided to extend the Special COVID-19 Social Relief of Distress Grant as many South Africans are still in need of the grant.

 


Minister of Social Development, Lindiwe Zulu, has said that there are talks happening about whether SASSA's social relief of distress grant of R350 will be reinstated. Many unions and organisations are calling for the grant to be extended as well as increased.


Minister Lindiwe Zulu was interviewed on radio and was asked to answer for the slow progress that SASSA has made with paying the R350 grant. The Minister has now given details about when more payments will be made.
