Where to collect SASSA SRD R350 if you are Approved

Are you a SASSA beneficiary who previously received the COVID-19 SRD R350 at the Post office? Well, if you did not know, the SA Post Office has stopped issuing the grant from their branches.

All beneficiaries are advised to use alternative payment methods which have been made available by SASSA.

Collect SASSA SRD R350 using these Options

Payment options have been expanded for applicants/beneficiaries with an “approved” status and a payment date. The grant can now be collected at the following merchants/retail outlets:

  • Checkers
  • Usave
  • Shoprite
  • Pick ‘n Pay
  • Boxer

For collection at the above-mentioned retail outlets, beneficiaries are expected to have their Identity Document and the cell phone number which they used when applying for the grant on the system. A withdrawal confirmation message would have been sent to that number.

Other payment methods available

Alternatively, all applicants for the SASSA SRD R350 grant are encouraged to update their details on the system to have the funds paid into their personal bank account as this is the safest and most convenient way to receive the grant. Otherwise, understand the reasons why your application is declined and fix the issues.

Remember, the Post Office has stopped paying out the R350 grant so don’t go to their branches but rather make use of the merchants.
