R350 SRD Sassa Payment Dates For January 2023
If you receive your Sassa R350 SRD grant payments through your bank account, there is no fixed payment date.
Sassa grant payments can be transferred directly into bank accounts or Sassa cards through CashSend.
Sassa Grant Payments of R350 can be collected at supermarkets such as Shoprite, Checkers, USave, Boxer, and Pick n Pay.
Those who wish to collect their R350 grant should wait for an SMS telling them that they can do so. If they haven’t received an SMS yet, they should not go out to collect it.
SASSA confirmed, “There is no need to withdraw cash on the first day.”. The money will remain in the account until it is needed.”
