Post Office Not Selected – SASSA SRD R350 Grant Status

Have you recently checked your status on the website of SRD R350 grants application and realized that post office not selected.

SASSA over the months saw the need to introduce a system where applicants who uses post office as payment options can choose which particular post office to collect their grants.

In this case applicants can choose which location preferably closer to him or her.

SAPO Post Office Selection for SRD R350 Grant

To choose a preferred location for collection, follow these steps below :

  • Click on this link Post Office Selection
  • Enter the 13-digit ID number and the 10 – digit phone number used to submit the application.
  • Click on the “send pin” button beneath.
  • SASSA will send a pin code to the phone number and enter the pin code received on the page working on currently.
  • And click on submit.
  • Follow the instructions on the page by selecting your preferred post office location in a particular Province.
  • That becomes your default post office that you will collect your grant.
  • In case, you do not change to a particular post office and post office not selected, then you can collect your grant at any post office of choice.

It has to be noted that, applicants who have been approved with pay dates can go to the post office for collection, otherwise you will be turned away by the post office attendants.

Post Office had earlier said that applicants whose grants are ready for collection will receive an SMS notification asking them to collect their grants from the Post Office but the SMS system does not always work.

So be advised to only go to the post office when you are approved with pay dates.

Post Office has also developed a system of payments where applicants can collect their SRD R350 grants using their last three digits of their ID numbers. Post Office Payments are using the applicant’s last three digits of their ID numbers.

    My son has opted for payment to go into bank account of which bank details were provided. August status shows application has been approved…with post office “not selected” showing. Could it mean that August payment could be at the post office. He, however, did not receive any sms from post office.

    1. DFlex

      If he submitted the bank account upfront thus during the application then he will be paid at the bank, however if he submitted bank account after submission of the application, then he should collect his August grant at Post office but September at the bank

      I applied for the R350 grant since I have been unemployed for the last five years. My application has been declined due to the fact that I have other sources of income which is not correct. I have been in contact with SARS on Monday, 13-09-2021 at Worcester branch. They informed me the system shows 2 IRP 5.» Sanlam and Momentum
      There were amounts that were handled as once off payments, which means that it is not a constant income.
      Can you assist me in this current matter?

      1. Bruce

        Hey Gavin, you should go to labour offices to get proof of unemployment papers, that will definitely help you out

  2. Since I made my application I never recieved any response from SASSA, I’m making this follow up message because I really need the grant since I don’t have any source of income.
    I hope I trust that I will get a response soon.
