SASSA Opens System to Change SRD Grant Payment Method
Applicants of the Special Covid-19 Social Relief of Distress Grant (SRD R350 Grant) can change their method of payment for their money to be paid into a bank account.
The window to change payment method opens on 03 until 10 September 2021, while the other social grants are being paid. The post office does not pay the SRD grant during the normal social grant payments of the Old Age, Disability and children's grants.
The South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) confirms the bank account method as the most convenient and quickest way to receive the grant, thereby avoiding queues at the post office.
