SASSA has encouraged beneficiaries to not hurry to collection points when they receive their payment SMS to avoid long queues and the possibility of being turned away without any assistance.

The applications and appeals process for the Special Relief of Distress grant, which saw beneficiaries collect R350 every month, came to an end on 30 April. SASSA has however said that if you did not collect your R350 grant before 30 April, you will still be able to after.

Payments are made from the month you applied or sent in your appeal which means that payments will not necessarily have stopped on 30 April. SASSA has not announced when payments for the grant will come to an end as SASSA has experienced payment backlogs.
