The SA Social Services Agency has extended the deadline for collecting unclaimed R350 grants until November 30. (Sassa). On Tuesday, the agency notified reporters that social development minister Lindiwe Zulu had granted the extension, which would let recipients get their payments at their local post office.
"This is an early Christmas present for permitted beneficiaries from the first cycle who were unable to claim their benefits at the post office. We realize that this specific gift goes a long way toward assisting society's most vulnerable people." As a result, we encourage approved clients who have unclaimed money from the previous cycle to retrieve it as soon as possible," said Sassa CEO Busisiwe Memela-Khambula.
If the money is not collected, it would be forfeited to the state and used to fund other government objectives, according to Memela-Khambula. The agency has advised grantees to collect their cash for the second time. Sassa produced a list of all beneficiaries from throughout the country who were yet to receive their payments in August. Only candidates who had been approved in the previous cycle were included on the list, not those who applied after President Cyril Ramaphosa reinstated the prize in his July national speech.
