New SASSA R350 Grant 2021 Application. Interested in the R350 grant? Wondering how you can apply? We have everything you need to know about SASSA SRD applications so keep reading.


Applications for the Special Relief of Distress (SRD) grant opens on 6 August and will close in March 2022. Social Development Minister, Lindiwe Zulu, finally gave details on how R350 grant applications will work for the reinstatement of the grant.

All applications must be done electronic/digitally. Only one of the channels below should be used and you only need to submit one application.

What are the requirements for the SRD grant?

  • South African citizens/permanent residents/refugees/asylum seekers/holders of special permits
  • Unemployed
  • Have no alternative source of income or financial support from any other source
  • Between the ages of 18 and 60

Caregivers are also eligible to receive the grant if they are not receiving any grant on their own behalf.

How to apply for SRD grant

In order to access or to have the application reconsidered for the Social Relief of Distress Grant, an applicant must grant consent for SASSA to verify his or her identity, residency, income or social security benefits.

Applicants will also need to accept the declaration and consent.

The new process will now request the applicants to provide their banking details upfront, so that SASSA can process R350 grant payments as soon as they meet the criteria.

It is not necessary to submit multiple applications. Confirmation will be received as soon as the application has been successfully submitted.

Those individuals who applied for the grant in the previous round will have to re-apply. Clients who previously cancelled the grant, and who would like to re-activate the grant, due to a change in their circumstances are welcome to re-apply.

Zulu continued to say, “We encourage all applicants to conclude their applications when they start making the applications to avoid any technical challenges”.
