SASSA Adds New Ways To Apply To R350 Grant


SASSA has expanded the ways in which you can apply for the Special Relief of Distress grant.

R350 grant applications opened today, 6 August, bright and early at 9AM. These SRD grant applications will close in March 2024

On Twitter, the agency said:

You can also apply for the Special COVID-19 SRD Grant via or Facebook messenger

This means that all the channels open for you to apply for the R350 grant are as follows:


SASSA implemented these new avenues for application due to the WhatsApp channel having technical difficulties and the SASSA SRD website being overwhelmed from applications and as a result saw it running slower.

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.

SASSA also made it clear that you can apply through the month of August to receive August payments.

Applicants are urged to only submit one application and to keep an eye on their SASSA grant application status.
