The South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) has announced that the first batch of payments for the SRD R350 grant will be made on the 22nd of February, 2023. This is welcome news for those who have been eagerly awaiting their payments.
The SRD R350 grant was introduced by the South African government as a way to provide financial support to those who have been most affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The grant is aimed at providing temporary relief to those who are unemployed or unable to work due to the pandemic.
The eligibility criteria for the SRD R350 grant include being a South African citizen or permanent resident, being unemployed or not receiving any other form of government assistance, and having no other source of income.
