As we approach the end of February, many South Africans are eagerly awaiting the payments of the Special Relief of Distress (SRD) R350 grant. The grant was reintroduced by the South African government in May 2021 as a temporary measure to provide relief to vulnerable individuals during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
However, it is important to note that there is no specific time frame for payments, and each applicant’s payment date will depend on when the South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) completes their means testing.
It is understandable that many people are anxious to receive their payments, as the grant provides much-needed assistance to those who have been financially impacted by the pandemic. However, it is important to remember that SASSA is processing a high volume of applications, and it may take some time to complete the means testing process for each applicant. Once the means testing is completed, SASSA will roll out the payment dates as soon as possible.

The payment dates will also depend on which payment method the applicant has chosen, as payments can be made via bank transfer, Cash Send Or Ewallet, or cash at a designated pay point or retail shops.
