Unlike the grants listed above, the new temporary R350 grant does not have a set payment date. However, some successful beneficiaries started receiving their payments on 25 August 2021.
SASSA said it will continue to process applications, after it reported receiving nearly 9 million applications since 6 August. Applicants who have not yet received their payments have been urged to be patient and wait to receive an SMS from SASSA informing them about the success of their application.
“Please be patient, payments are being made as we speak. SASSA CARES and we will pay all deserving applicants. SASSA apologises for all inconvenience caused.” said SASSA in a tweet.
Applicants from previous cycles of the grant who were approved but have not yet collected their payments have been urged to do so before 31 August 2021. After this date, payments for outstanding and uncollected grants will no longer be processed.
SASSA explained that there are thousands of applicants who have still not collected their payments due to various reasons.
“Outstanding payments are in the region of 45 414 (transactions) from approved but unable to trace applicants or they did not contact SASSA to update their personal details. A total of 571 724 grants approved remain uncollected at SAPO.”
Beneficiaries can call SASSA on 0800 601 011 or 012 400 2000 to verify if they have any outstanding balances that need to be collected.
