The South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) has announced the approval and payment dates for the March 2023 Special Relief of Distress (SRD) grant of R350. This grant is provided to eligible South Africans who are unemployed and are in need of financial assistance.
If you have applied for the March 2023 SRD grant, you will be pleased to know that SASSA has started issuing payment dates to all approved applicants. The payment dates will start from the 23rd of March 2023 and end on the 25th of March 2023. This means that if you have been approved for the grant, you should receive your payment within this three-day period.
It is important to note that the payment date you receive may not necessarily be on the first day of the payment period. SASSA has stated that the payment dates are issued randomly to avoid overloading the system on any particular day.
If you have applied for the SRD grant but have not received a payment date, it may be because your application is still being processed. You can check the status of your application by visiting the SASSA SRD R350 Grant website or by calling the SASSA helpline on 0800 60 10 11.
If you have been declined for the SRD grant, SASSA encourages you to appeal the decision. You can do this by visiting your nearest SASSA office or by calling the SASSA helpline. The appeal process allows you to provide additional information that was not included in your initial application.
If you have been approved for the March 2023 SRD grant, you can expect to receive your payment between the 23rd and 25th of March 2023. If you have been declined for the grant, you can appeal the decision by visiting a SASSA office or calling the SASSA helpline.
