SASSA has finally confirmed that the extension of the SRD grant from April 2022 to March 2023 payments will start mid June.

According to the statement released by SASSA, they have done all the necessary documentations and applicants will start seeing the April 2022 changing from pending before 15th of June.


Applicants have waited for so long after they were asked to reapply or to say confirm their existing applications.

Due to some legal framework from one side to the other and budget approval.


The statement further indicated that since they are in arrears for the month of April and May 2022, payment can be done twice in a month but not paid together at once until all arrears are paid off.

Payments for the new cycle of the special COVID-19 SRD grant (from April 2022) will be paid as from mid-June 2022.

SASSA will continue clearing outstanding payments from the previous cycle as and when the bank details are confirmed.

The payments will not be done together, but will be done month by month.

More than one payment may be made in a month, but no one will receive double payments in amount.

SASSA will do these multiple payments in a month until the backlog is finalized, where after monthly payments will resume.


We keep an eye on the status dashboard to see if the words of SASSA will surely come to pass.
