Has SASSA SRD R350 Increased To R624?

The South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) provides various forms of social grants to eligible citizens to help improve their living conditions. One of the most popular grants is the Special Relief of Distress (SRD) grant, which is usually provided as a once-off payment in times of hardship or emergency. In recent times, there has been a lot of speculation on major social media platforms like Facebook about an increase in the SASSA SRD grant from the current R350 to either R500 or R624.

However, it is important to note that these rumors are false and have not been officially confirmed by SASSA or the South African government. The SASSA SRD grant amount has remained at R350 since its introduction and there have been no announcements or plans to increase it to either R500 or R624.

It is important to be cautious when it comes to information spread on social media platforms and to only rely on official sources for accurate information. This is particularly true when it comes to sensitive issues such as social grants, as misinformation can lead to confusion and frustration for those who rely on these grants for their livelihoods.

During the President’s SONA 2023 speech, he made an indication that grants will be increased but did not specify whether or not the SRD R350 is part or not.

To summarise, the SASSA SRD grant has not been increased to R500 or R624, and it remains at R350. Until an official announcement is made by SASSA or the South African government, it is best to rely on reliable sources for information on social grants and other important matters.
