What have you been waiting for after successfully submitting your SRD R350 application? It has to do with the SASSA SRD R350 grant application payments for August 2021.
And this is exactly what we are all looking forward to seeing payment dates showing up on our status.
Challenges When Checking SRD R350 Grant Application Status
Numerous applicants, a large percentage of applicants are facing challenges over the weeks when they want to check their status.
Indeed, when you check the SASSA SRD R350 official website https://srd. sassa.gov.za, the status check module online is inactive indicating sassa has not fully activated status checking.
In a tweet sassa admitted that they are currently experiencing heavy traffic on their website as more people are trying to access the website simultaneously.
They have however offered the assurance that they will resolve that sooner or later and that applicants must be patient enough.
SASSA SRD R350 Grant Payments Dates August 2021
When asked on Twitter as to when payment will start, SASSA responded to this Twitter user that plans are far advanced to start payment for the August 2021 on 23rd August 2021 which happens to be this Monday.
But they were quick to add that, payment dates for individual applications cannot be certain.
But they are sure payments will start Monday, just a clarification that Approvals will also start same day.
As the Minister made it known during one her speeches, funds are secured by the agency from Treasury, so that applicants are paid right away when approved.
It is therefore likely that this time around, applicants will not have to wait days or weeks before seeing payment dates showing or approved without pay dates.
Especially those using their personal bank account will be paid faster compared to those who have to queue up at the various Post offices.
Update to this story : SASSA has started payments especially for those who are using their own bank accounts.
