IMPORTANT NOTICE| Sassa Announces Cash Challenges, Here's What You Need To Know.

After the outbreak of the Covid-19 epidemic, the SRD award was a breakthrough and a success for the millions of people who had lost their jobs. Beneficiaries didn't have to jump through hoops like they do now to get their hands on their money since the process was simple. 

Many people have expressed their displeasure with the newly established method, which compels applicants to reapply in order to be eligible for the new award, which will end in March 2023. Waiting for SASSA approval is the current status of beneficiaries. Their parents' id numbers and the amount of money they make each month have been requested in the meantime. 

Since the post office payment dates for April and May have been announced, yet no one has received an SMS from SASSA telling them to collect their money, things are much more complicated. 

This only gets worse. As a result of SASSA's notification that it is facing cash difficulties, people who obtain their money from the post office are now compelled to request that their money be transferred to an ATM through the agency's website. There are some financial difficulties at SASSA, according to the agency. 

The South African Post Office (SAPO) has warned recipients that they would not be able to receive their money from any of its branches. This change affects all grant winners. 

Since cash points are experiencing problems, grant recipients will likewise be unable to access their funds. At this moment, the only thing that SASSA can do for its beneficiaries is help them in obtaining PINS that they may use at pay stations. As a result, SASSA has stationed SASSA and SAPO agents at cash points to assist those who have been adversely affected. 

Retailers such as Checkers, USAVE, Boxer, Pick n Pay and Shoprite allow beneficiaries to access their monies, but they require their identity numbers and the cellphone number they used when registering to receive their One Time Pin before they can do so.

The Views of the General Public 

Since of this, many people who are qualified for aid are dissatisfied because they now have to wait in line for a long time before they can get their money. Due to the fact that many people have not yet been approved, there is no money to collect. Since they claim to be food insecure, they've decided to stop accepting donations. 

The Viewpoint of the Author. 

When I think about how politics built on victimhood, anger, and deception keeps underprivileged people locked up, it crushes my heart. The current economic crisis may easily be mistaken for taking place in another country. Stability, soaring unemployment, and state collapse are most widespread in the periphery, which is alarming. And, regrettably, the weight falls disproportionately on the shoulders of the poor. 

PRASA has been abolished. There aren't any jobs to be had. Housing, healthcare, education, road maintenance and law enforcement are just a few of the things that are being neglected due to the lack of funding. As a large percentage of the population relies on social aid, it appears that they will be forced to wait indefinitely.
