SASSA's Outstanding R350 SRD Grant Payment Dates Back To 2021

Over the years since the SASSA R350 SRD grant's introduction, many recipients have voiced frustration that they have not received the full amount to which they are entitled.

Things have gotten worse since April, when the Social Department began requiring grantees to reapply for funds. Although the government agency has been attempting to pay back the R350 it owes to a number of grantees since 2021, it has so far been unsuccessful.

Grantees have been left waiting for up to eight months for payment from the government. Those who qualify for these grants have a genuine need for the R2800 that they provide.

The majority of grant recipients had their first requests turned down. After their application for the grant was reviewed, they were given the money. Although the system indicates approval, SASSA has not yet released payment. They've been shuffled around from department to department without any real help.

They have since put their faith in the People's Campaign, #PayTheGrants.

We stand behind the #paythegrants movement because we want the Social Security Administration to pay those who are due it.
