Beneficiaries of the R350 Emergency Social Assistance (SRD) grant
Beneficiaries of the R350 Emergency Social Assistance (SRD) grant have until July 7 to update their information if they want to get paid before April and May.
The SA Social Security Agency (Sassa) sent a reminder this weekend, urging beneficiaries to update their personal information initially provided incorrectly on the SRD website and/or change their answers to the screening questions in their applications.
“Customers who wish to update their screening questions for the April and May timeframe assessment should update their data by July 7,” said Sassa.
When will other social benefits be paid this month?
According to Sassa, social benefits for July will start on Monday for the elderly, followed by disability benefits on Tuesday, and all other grants will be paid from Wednesday.
“Customers who do not have a PIN or have forgotten their PIN are encouraged to ensure that they reset their PIN at the nearest post office. Those who have PINs and remember them do not need to renew their PIN.
“This allows our customers to use all available channels to access their grants and gives them the freedom to use their Sassa cards at all pick-up points, such as ATMs and retailers Pick n Pay, Shoprite, Boxer and U-Save,” he said. the agency.
Can I pick up my scholarship before the mentioned dates?
Sassa urged beneficiaries to only go to mobile pay points on specific dates to avoid disappointment.
“Beneficiaries who receive their social grants at Sassa’s mobile payment points are advised to access their exchanges through the above payment infrastructures on the days allotted for the specific exchanges, or at any time thereafter, and that they do not have to wait for the cash payment dates.
“Beneficiaries are advised to be vigilant and careful when using their pins at all times, and not to share it with anyone, even close family members.”
