SASSA Announces Cash Challenges, Here's What You Need To Know.
The SRD award, which was formed after the outbreak of the Covid-19 epidemic, was a breakthrough and a success for the millions of people who have lost their jobs. The process was simple, and beneficiaries did not have to overcome nearly as many roadblocks as they do now to receive their funds.
Many people have questioned the recently introduced method, which compels applicants to reapply in order to be eligible for the new prize, which will end in March 2023. Beneficiaries are presently awaiting approval from SASSA. Meanwhile, they've been asked for their parents' identity numbers and questioned about their monthly income.
To make matters worse, the post office payment dates for April and May have been announced, but it appears that no one has received an SMS from SASSA telling them to collect their funds.
Unfortunately, things only get worse. People who obtain their money at the post office are expected to go to the SASSA website and request that their money be withdrawn from an ATM because the agency has announced that it is facing cash shortages. SASSA is experiencing financial difficulties, according to the organization.
Beneficiaries have been advised not to go to any South African Post Office (SAPO) offices since no cash would be collected there. This modification has an impact on all grant recipients.
Furthermore, currency points are experiencing difficulties, therefore grant beneficiaries will not be served in their entirety. At this moment, the best SASSA can do is help recipients obtain PINS that they can use at pay points. As a result, agents from SASSA and SAPO have been stationed at cash points to help beneficiaries who have been impacted.
Beneficiaries can also get their money from Checkers, USAVE, Boxer, Pick n Pay, and Shoprite, but they'll need their identity numbers and the telephone number they used to register for their One Time Pin.
The Public's Viewpoint
As a result, many people who are qualified for assistance are dissatisfied since they now have to wait in line for a long period to receive it. Many people are voicing their unhappiness with the reality that there is no money to collect because the majority of their claims have yet to be accepted. They claim they don't have food and are therefore unable to accept the money.
Author's Point of View
It pains me to think that victimhood, resentment, and deception are used to keep underprivileged people trapped in a circle of corruption. One may easily believe that the current economic catastrophe is occurring in some foreign location. The fact that stagnation, increasing unemployment, and state collapse are most widespread in the periphery is concerning. Those with lower salaries, unfortunately, suffer the brunt of the burden.
PRASA has vanished. There are no more openings. There is no money for anything, including housing, healthcare, education, roads, or police enforcement, to name a few. The vast majority of people rely on social assistance, yet it appears that they will have to wait indefinitely to be approved.
