It is revealed that from now on, as for Pick & Pay and Boxer shops will now be accepting recipients of the R350 Social Relief of Distress (SRD) grant to collect their cash from the stores. This means that the lines from post offices and also on the ATM machines will be decreased.
Only grant beneficiaries who have received an SMS from the SA Social Security Agency (Sassa) confirming their collection payout point as either Pick n Pay or Boxer can utilize the new collections points, Meaning that if you have not yet received yours, you just have to stay put and wait until you get it.
According to Nobuhle Njapha, a spokeswoman for the SA Post Office in KwaZulu-Natal, she revealed that if you got the confirmation, it is when you have to go collect it. So it is good news at last that the beneficiaries will not have to stand anymore in the long ques.
