SASSA Angers R350 COVID-19 Grant Applicants with ‘Payment Date’ Statement


The South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) on Tuesday issued a statement on Twitter regarding the R350 COVID-19 Grant, which said ‘nothing at all’.

“There is no fixed payment date for the special Covid-19 SRD grant. The applicant will be paid for each month as long as they still meet the qualification criteria. Every month the application will be verified to ensure that the applicant still qualifies for that particular month,” SASSA wrote in its official Twitter.

“Those who feel aggrieved by the outcome of their application should either call 0800 60 10 11 or email with their complaints in order to access the recourse mechanism. The appeal process is still in discussions.”

The statement angered Twitter users who wanted to know when they should expect their R350 Social Relief Grant to be paid.

Many applicants for the R350 COVID-19 Grant were frustrated by the message and voiced their anger on Twitter:





  1. I’ve been approved but haven’t received any money as from may I’ve been approved for june and July no payments

  2. Sassa is robbing us so how are they gonna pay people for June,July, August, September this is very very wrong

  3. A week before last week I’ve just changed the payment from post office to my bank account, and when i check it says approved .the reason why i change is tht evertim i go to the post office its always full if not full the machines isn’t working if not working then they stole the machines which i end up running out of money for the taxi to go to the post office.

    Why we suffering lik this
