The SA Post Office (Sapo) will not be making any payments of the R350 social relief of distress (SRD) grant next week as the week is reserved for the payment of old age, child and disability grants. Sapo said SRD grant beneficiaries can start making their way to post offices from October 11.
Sapo announced payment dates on Tuesday that apply to all of its offices, but not to Pick n Pay, Spar, or Boxer locations that recently began accepting SRD payments. Beneficiaries who have their ID numbers and a message from SASSA verifying their collection details can obtain their payments at these supermarkets.
The SA Social Security Agency (Sassa) continues to receive applications for SDR funds as well as inquiries about applications that have been declined. The organization revealed on Tuesday that some candidates are declined for the grant if they are discovered to have other sources of income during the verification procedure.
Applicants who obtained a grant despite this must repay the money to the agency.
“You are considered a debtor if the findings of the auditor-general show you have alternative sources of income and Sassa previously paid you when you did not qualify. According to section 10.1 of the ministerial orders, the client is obligated to pay back,” Sassa explained.
Here is when you can collect your approved R350 grant from a post office (based on ID numbers):
080 — Tuesday October 12, 19 and 26
081 — Wednesday October 13, 20 and 27
082 — Thursday October 14, 21 and 28
083 — Friday October 1, 15, 22 and 29
084 — Monday October 11, 18 and 25
085 — Tuesday October 12, 19 and 26
086 — Wednesday October 13, 20 and 27
087 — Thursday October 14, 21 and 28
088 — Friday October 1, 15, 22 and 29
089 — Monday October 11, 18 and 25
These dates are applicable to the post office payout system. Beneficiaries can receive their grants as soon as they receive confirmation of payment from Sassa.
