Approved Without Pay Dates SASSA SRD R350

  • If you have switched from one payment option to another after receiving your sassa srd grant in the previous payment option.
  • Wrong information can also lead to approved without pay dates. SASSA wants to make sure they make payments to qualified applicants and directly paid to the applicant only.

Always, make sure your bank account name and account number are correctly entered and the name must be the same as on the ID documents.
