  • Friday, March 3 — disability grants; and
  • Monday, March 6 — all other grants will be paid from this day onwards, including the children’s grant.

Sassa said there is no need to withdraw cash on the first day. “As soon as the money is deposited in the account, it will remain there until it is needed.”

Where can I collect the payment?

The SRD grant recipients selected to be paid through Postbank or Cashsend are encouraged to open bank accounts. Sassa urged clients who have been approved for the SRD but do not see a payment date on their January status or earlier months and have selected to receive payment through Postbank or Cashsend to open bank accounts and upload them to the system.
