How long does it take to get SRD grant after approval? Has SASSA approved your SRD R350 grant and do you want to know when you’ll start getting your grant money?

Well, you should make the inquiry because, after all, the money is the reason you applied for the grant and once you are approved, you should know when you’ll get paid your money.

So, in this article, we’re answering the question of how long it takes to get paid for SASSA R350 grant after you are approved.

We’ll also answer other frequent questions about the SASSA R350 payment date.

So, let’s get started with the topics.

How Long Does It Take To Get SRD Grant After Approval?

You’ll get paid the same month you are approved for the SASSA SRD R350 Grant. When SASSA approves your SRD R350 grant, you’ll get paid that same month on the date that will be given to you for payment collection.

The structure of the Covid-19 Social Relief of Distress (SRD) grant is such that, applicants are reviewed and verified every month to check if they still qualify for the grant before they are paid.

After SASSA makes its crosschecks and you’re approved for the payment, it means you’ll be paid for that month in which you’re approved to receive the grant.

SASSA pays SRD R350 applicants the same month they are approved to receive payment

How Do I Know My SASSA SRD R350 Payment Date?

The South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) will send you an SMS notification that contains your payment date for the R350 grant.

You’ll then take your SMS which has your payment date to your SASSA payment point on the date to collect your R350.

We do recommend that you read When Can I Collect My SASSA R350 Grant Payment? for further explanation and dates and how SASSA selects dates for your SRD payment.

Can I Choose My R350 Payment Date?

No, you cannot choose the date you want your R350 grant to be paid to you. It is only SASSA that has the sole authority to schedule the date for your R350 grant payment.

Again, SASSA uses the last three (3) digits of your South African ID number to give you the date for payment of your R350 grant.

Can I Check My SASSA Status To Know If I Am Approved?

Yes, you can check your SASSA R350 grant application status to know if you’re approved for payment for the month.

In fact, we do encourage all beneficiaries to check their SRD R350 status every month even before SASSA publishes payment dates for the month.

You should read SASSA Status Check For R350 Payment Dates for the step-by-step guide to check your R350 grant payment date successfully.
