Payments are still currently in progress. So, those who haven’t been paid yet need not worry as they will receive their payment and still get their coming month’s payments again if they still qualify.
SASSA has not provided a date for when payments will stop. Due to this, should you be approved you will then receive payments from that month?
R350 grant appeals will also come to an end at the end of April. This is a mechanism for those who were rejected from receiving the grant and feel this was unfair.
