This is an update to our previous post asking applicants of the SASSA SRD R350 grant to stop checking their grants online.

In the post we asked desperate applicants to rather contact SASSA on 0800601011 to find out their current status for August 2021 SRD payments.


Although the line has been very busy, those who have been able to go through can confidently say their status.

When you are able to go through the line, the SASSA agent will ask for your ID number so that they can easily check your status.


Users should note that, the cell phone number (0800601011) is a toll free number so users are not charged for calling.

These are some of the comments from those who were able to talk to the agents :

"Approved with pay dates thus 27th August 2021." 

"Approved with pay dates : 28th August 2021"

"Approved without pay dates, bank account yet to be verified (Bank is Capitec)"

"Status is pending"

From the above comments from these applicants who are obviously happy, it is clear that SASSA is actually working in the background and as they have promised to reactivate the status check module online so that individual applicants can check their own status.

SASSA SRD R350 status check Call SASSA

It has to be noted that payments are currently ongoing and we have some applicants confirming their SMS alert from their bank accounts since Wednesday 25th August 2021.


SASSA is eager to help reduce agitation build up by this initial challenges experienced by grant recipients or applicants.

You can share your experience and feedback with us in the comments section so that others too can learn from it.

It is our hope that by next week Monday SASSA will reactivate the application check module to reduce the tension mounted especially online

They should also help our mothers and uncles who have no idea about online platform by using the local FM radios to educate them in their respective local languages about the happenings of the reinstated SRD R350 Grant.

    1. I’m enquiring on behalf of my daughter her September was approved she was given a date but no money in her bank account (Capitec) she double checked if her bank details were correct via govchat… I just don’t understand why give a date and no money in the account… So disappointed 😥

      1. This is exactly what is happening to me too August, September I’ve been approved with a paydate appearing too but I haven’t received any income

  1. I chose da post bank option instant money option nothing is being said wen and how DAT will be paid out.I’m concerned coz nobody even commented on dis option.I chose my bank acc.last year and was sent a sms coz my new so money will be deducted and I don’t want dat dats why I chose da new option.

      1. Hi DFlex my current status for August and September both shows that I have been approved with no pay dates, I first used the ewallet method then decided to use my bank account. I am a caregiver and was told that the money would be in my existing sassa card up until now I haven’t received anything. This is very frustrating.

        1. If you are using ewallet then you may have to wait…. But caregivers should have their payments on their SASSA gold card.

          There might be some issue with your account. Better try to contact sassa on 0800601011 toll free number to check for you
