Despite Sassa’s earlier announcement that all grants, including the SRD, would be disbursed on August 2, 3, and 4, the R350 payment did not materialize as promised.

Reasons Behind the Payment Delays

Paseka Letsatsi, Sassa’s spokesperson, while speaking on Newzroom Afrika, mentioned that the agency faced a backlog causing these delays. He explained, “The delay occurred as we assess applicants monthly to ensure their circumstances remain unchanged. We’ve now decided to regularly update the payment schedule on social media and share it with media outlets.”

How Beneficiaries Can Prevent Delays

Letsatsi emphasized the importance for beneficiaries to keep their details updated on Sassa’s platform or to reach out to the call centre. He noted, “In some cases, even if approved, there might be issues with the beneficiaries’ details. We urge them to update their information on our website.”
