For many applicants of the SASSA SRD R350 grant application who chose to use the post office for collection here is what you need to do.

It has to be noted that even if one does not choose any payment option during application, the post office becomes the default pay point because of the partnership between SASSA and the post office.


Even recently, SASSA has indicated that those earlier opted for cash send or ewallet payments option have to provide bank account or else post office becomes the only way out.

In order to collect r350 grant from the Post Office, you have to consider the following:

  • You are approved with pay dates
  • You have your ID documents or smart ID card
  • You know the date of payments base on the last three digits of your ID number. Depending on the month, Post office gives payment dates for the ensuing month which is accessible here for the month of November 2021.
