Every single day desperate applicants for the special social relief of distress grant which the president of South Africa announced in one of his state of the nation address on April.

The payment was to start in May and follow through to October making a total of six months.

This was to help unemployed people who have been one way or other lost their jobs or their source of livelihood.

In the initial stages, a chunk of the applicants were declined on the basis that they have other sources of income according to a certain database from the Department of Labour and employment.

But that was later dismissed because according to sassa, they have now a new and more updated version of the database which saw about eighty five percent (85%) of the declined applications overturned.

As a result sassa has come under intense pressure to make sure all these people are paid.

Payment Dates

Per the system been used by sassa to facilitate the process payments, after approval the applicant is either asked to go to the post office for his money or money deposited into the bank account of the applicant.

Now the issue is sometimes when the applicant checks his status, the application is approved but no payment dates. When this happens, the user(applicant) become frustrated.

It must however be noted that the end user in this case the applicant has no control over the payment date. It has to be set by the sassa system administrator. The date indicates when the payment was issued from sassa.

According to sassa, the turnaround time for payment to be effected to the applicant’s bank account or SMS sent to collect the money from the Post office takes 7 working days and may be a bit longer due high volume of applications.

It has to be noted that sassa has no fixed payment dates for the srd grant of R350. As such, as and when the application is screened and approved, sassa set individual dates for each applicant.

Don’t be obsessed when you are approved but no payment dates set on your srd dashboard or status.

So far, because of the huge volume of backlog of applications emanating from May, we only hope that after the May payment, subsequent payments months will be smooth as right now, all information must have submitted already.
