South Africans who are now unemployed have only had access to the R350 monthly stipend for about 90 days. As a result of the lifting of the National State of Disaster, the guidelines for awarding grants have been modified. Payments to SASSA beneficiaries will increase to R350 per month in June 2022. Those who were awarded the R350 grant are in a difficult position for the months of April and May because their grant status will remain "Forthcoming".
Brenton van Vrede, a member of Sassa's staff, has revealed that the corporation skipped payments for the two months prior so that they could focus on this one. After starting with payments for the month of June, Van Vrede disclosed the ongoing prepayment of SRD award payments and said that the Sassa will soon begin with payments that extend for as long as months. He could see why R350 recipients got their April and May checks in July and August.
Clients who are sponsored by businesses will also receive their payment for the current month. Payments will be made at different times throughout the month, so customers should not expect a single sum. A recipient may receive more than one payment in a given month. Because the Department of Social Development (DSD) is working to create a workable check procedure and verify that the necessary frameworks are in place for the distribution of the award, Sassa was unable to issue R350 grant payments in the months of April and May.
This confirmation step will help the Auditor-General monitor R350 grant applications to ensure funding reaches those who can put it to the best use. Some incompetent applicants have been given dismissal statuses reading "Self Exclusionary Response Found" It has been recommended that Sassa customers not utilize any public social media profiles when applying for the R350 incentive. They run the risk of having their private data exploited for dishonest purposes.
