SASSA Applicants to be paid at the Post Office for SRD R350?

Reports just coming in suggest that SASSA applicants are to be paid at the post office for the special sassa social relief of distress Grant of R350.

Screenshots by some of the applicants seems to suggest that SASSA has now adopted to pay some of the unemployment grant applicants through the post office.

The said SMS which is supposedly emanating from SASSA is directing the applicants to visit any nearest post office to collect their srd Grant of R350 and they should go along with their IDs.

It seems this is a new twist of the whole payment process as that was not mentioned in the early stages.

The message goes like this:

Surname with DOB and AppID. Please Visit your nearest Post Office for your Covid R350 grant Payment from SASSA. Please take your SA ID with

supposed message from SASSA

It might not be that surprising as SASSA has come under intense pressure due to its inability to pay all the applicants on time. Most of the applicants have been looking forward for this money just for sustenance, but for more one month the cash was not forthcoming.

Below are some of the screenshots shared by some applicants:

Sassa payments message #srd #R350
sassa srd R350 payment message

Although SASSA has apologized for the mishaps attributing to the fact that all applicants have to go through vigorous screening and verification process to make sure that only deserving persons.

This will come as a good news because some of the applicants have no bank accounts and are at crossroads as to how to receive their money.

This will be a big relief for such ones as they only need to verify that the owners of the application by showing their SA IDs.
