How to Fast Track Your SRD Grant January Payment

In todays latest SASSA News – Your application for a Social Relief of Distress (SRD) grant has been granted, but you have not yet been given a date by which you will be paid. Follow these steps to expedite your payments.

With the introduction of the Special Covid-19 Social Relief of Distress (SRD) grant, the South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) aims to assist the unemployed in meeting their basic needs. These individuals are ineligible for any other grants or subsidies from the government and so cannot get this one.

If a grantee has been authorized for the SRD grant but has not yet received a payment date for January or an earlier month, they may request expedited payment. Those who have opted to receive their payments via the Postbank system or Cashsend option can do so by opening a bank account and uploading their account details.

In order to avoid any issues, those who choose to have their money deposited into a bank account should be the account holder. Please note that Sassa will not transfer funds from your award to the bank account of another individual.

Individuals are strongly encouraged to obtain their own checking and/or savings accounts if they do not already have them. If they are unable to do so, they may instead decide to send money.

If a beneficiary requests a money transfer, the funds will be disbursed to them through a large financial institution. The money transfer payment method will be linked to the mobile phone number on which they received the SMS, thus it is in their best interest to make sure that number is in their name.

Sassa informs SRD grantees that they cannot receive grant funds at a non-existent or a previously used phone number. The recipient can then use the SIM card they purchased and activated in their name to receive money transfers.
