SASSA Updated Payment Dates

SASSA Updated Payment Dates

SASSA Updated Payment Dates Old age and disability grants recipients receive R1 890, while people above the age of 75 (along with war veterans) receive R1 910. Foster care grant recipients receive R1 050, while care dependency is R1 890. The current amount for the child support grant is R460.

Dates are important to note as the Post Office, who distributes grants on behalf of SASSA, does not process the R350 grant on these selected days.

Because SASSA does not have a dedicated payment date for the R350 Social Relief of Distress (SRD) grant. The SRD grant payment date is determined by SASSA based on personal eligibility to receive the grant.

SRD grant beneficiaries are urged to wait for an SMS informing them that their money is available. This would prevent SRD grant applicants from going to the post office and being turned away.
