Sassa R350 Grant Payment Date: A Lifeline for Millions of South Africans
Sassa r350 grant payment date: The South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) has changed the times when social grants will be paid out in November.
Sassa says that all grant payments can still be picked up at South African Post Office (Sapo) offices, except for the R350 Covid-19 social relief of distress (SRD) grant.
November Sassa Grant Payment Schedules
- Grant for Older People – November 2
- Grant for Disability – November 3
- Grants for children and everyone else – November 6
When the R350 Grant Will Be Paid in November?
The R350 Social Relief of Distress grant from the Department of Social Development is now in its third run and has helped more than 7.5 million eligible South Africans since May 2020. It is managed by Sassa.
Instead of having set dates for when Sassa’s permanent grants are paid, the date of the R350 grant payouts has not been known until now. This is because every month the department has to check to see if users are eligible.
On the other hand, Sassa just started using a structured payment date method to let grant recipients know when they can pick up their money.
People who get the R350 grant in November can expect to get their money between November 24th and November 30th.
This is payment week for Sassa grants, so recipients should check their progress on the SRD website to make sure they know exactly when their grant money will be in their bank accounts.
Those who are applying for SRD can check their payment, balance, or pending application progress online at www.statuscheck.co.za.

Who is Able to Get the SRD Grant?
The grant is for South African citizens, refugees, asylum seekers, and special permit holders between the ages of 18 and 60 with a monthly income of less than R624. The department says that the grant is for people “who have insufficient means, who do not receive social grants on behalf of herself/himself or who are not contributing to or eligible for UIF payment and have no financial support from any other source.”
Different Ways to Collect SRD Grant
There are several ways to get your R350 grant payment from Sassa.
1. A bank account:
As a receiver of the SRD grant, you can choose to have the money sent straight to your bank account. This method makes sure that you can get to your money quickly as soon as it’s ready.
2. Send cash
People who don’t have their own bank account can use the Cash Send payment method to get their SRD grant payment.
To use this method, you’ll need to enter your ID number and phone number. For this way of collection, you’ll need a cellphone with a registered number and a valid form of ID.
3. Shops and stores
A lot of shops across the country make it easy to get an R350 grant. Pick n Pay, Checkers, Shoprite, and Boxer shops are all good choices.
