How To Avoid Delayed Grant Payments for R350

Many approved applicants of the R350 SRD grant have experienced delays in receiving their grant payments due to various reasons, here’s how you can dodge delayed R350 grant payments.

The South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) has stated that incorrect banking details provided by beneficiaries of the R350 Social Relief of Distress (SRD) grant may cause delays in the payment of their approved R350 grant.

They have advised beneficiaries to ensure that they provide the correct banking details when submitting their application for the SRD grant in order to dodge delayed payments. 

It is also said that payment of the R350 grant through a bank account is faster and easier and beneficiaries are able to withdraw their grant payment at any ATM.

Beneficiaries with approved applications can update their bank account details on the SRD website:

How To Change your Banking Details for SRD Grant:

  1. Click here to visit the SRD website.
  2. Scroll to “How do I change my banking details”.
  3. Enter your ID Number.
  4. An SMS containing a secure link, unique to you, will be sent to the mobile phone number with which you registered during the application.
  5. Click on the link in the SMS.
  6. Follow the instructions carefully.

Beneficiaries must ensure that the bank account details they provide is their own as Sassa cannot pay the R350 grant into another person’s account.

Sassa will only make use of new banking details for future payments after the account details have been verified.

The R350 SRD grant was introduced during the Covid-19 pandemic as a way to financially assist citizens who are unemployed and receive no other income. Beneficiaries who have been approved for this grant receive R350 grant payments every month.
