As part of SASSA’s effort to speed up the payment of the pandemic fund announced by the president to cushion vulnerable people and those who are heavily impacted by the novel virus. The agency through its Twitter page has assured applicants that payments will start tomorrow 15 May, 2020.
They have however urged the applicants to exercise patience as they try to sort out all those who qualify before payments are made.
Millions of people have applied for the social relief of distress grant of R350 for the next six months starting from May through October 2020.
SASSA has provided four main channels people can use to apply for the grant.
After successful submission of the applications, applicants will have to wait for SASSA to confirm using all the data at their disposal to verify the eligibility of the applicants.
If the applicants meet all the requirements, they will officially be notified and payment channel requested. The applicants will have to provide how they can receive the money either through their bank or mobile money transfer..
Applicants are therefore to be on alert as they wait for notification from SASSA.
Meanwhile, there is no other way for the applicants to know whether they are approved or not unless they receive official confirmation from SASSA.
