Social Relief of Distress (SRD) Grant Payment Dates

SRD grants for December 2023 will be disbursed between 24 December and 30 December 2023. Beneficiaries are encouraged to check their Sassa status on the SRD website during the payment week to ascertain the exact date when their grant payment will be reflected in their bank accounts.

Convenient Ways to Receive Your Grant

Permanent grant beneficiaries and SRD grant recipients have the option of direct deposit into their bank accounts, offering convenient access to their funds. Additionally, Sassa grants are available at selected retailers nationwide, such as Pick n Pay, Shoprite, Boxer stores, Usave stores, and Checkers, ensuring easy access for grant recipients. Mobile cash pay points are also accessible for grant beneficiaries, although this method has limited flexibility and funds are available for only a few hours during specific payment cycles.
