As for the Covid-19 Special Relief of Distress (SRD) grant, or what's known as the R350 grant, there is not a set payment date. Once you've been approved, SASSA then aims to pay soon after that. However, delays are possible.

Beneficiaries are urged to wait for an SMS to say that they can collect their R350 grant and should not head out to collect it if they haven't received an SMS.

Grants will be paid to the beneficiary through the method they chose when applying for the grant, this is relevant for all SASSA grants.

SASSA continues to say, “There is no need to rush to withdraw cash on the first day. Once the money is in the account, it will remain there until it is needed”.

Should you have any questions for SASSA about your SASSA grants, you can call them at 0800 60 10 11 or visit the SASSA website here.
