SASSA SRD R350 Payment Method – Post Office, Bank Account or Cash Send or Ewallet


Since the introduction of the SASSA SRD R350 grant, some payment options are available for use by applicants.

Today, we look at various payment methods or options available for applicants to choose from depending on their needs and convenience.

When the grant was first introduced in May 2020, the only option available then was Post Office Payments, but later they added bank account and ewallet or Cash Send through partnered banks.

Post Office Payments Option

As usual, Post office payments are the default pay point for the SASSA SRD R350 grant payments. If the applicant does not have any bank account or phone number registered, then the system automatically picks Post Office Payments.

Submit or Resubmit SRD R350 Grant Bank Account Details

Here, the approved applicant only need ID book or card for collection. Those who don’t have ID documents may have to apply a temporary ID from the Home Affairs Department.

There has been several reports if applicants going for their grants only to be told, someone has already collected the money. Very unfortunate and detestable and tantamount to corruption.

Some of these affected applicants are helpless and even if the matter is reported, nothing is done about it.

SASSA and post office must investigate these reports of thievery which is suspected to be among some of the staffs of the post office. Such complaints should be given the needed attention with all seriousness.

Post Office Virtual Cards

This is a a new addition to the payment options when the SRD R350 Grant was reinstated. As the name goes, it is a virtual card, it is not a physical ATM card, but virtual one with all the details if debit card just like Visa card, Master card etc.

Virtual Bank Card

These virtual cards according to Post Office, is free to use. It can be used to withdraw from some ATM machines and Post Banks in the country. You are likely to use a card less services when using on an ATM machine.

The card number and even a pin will be given.

Ewallet or Cash Send Payment Option

This is for those who do not have bank account or do not want to go to the post office to collect their grants.

SASSA has some partnership with some selected banks and when an applicant chooses this option, his account number becomes the phone number which should have been RICA’ed or registered in the applicant’s name.

In this case, you cannot use someone else’s cell phone number or if the sim card is yours but not registered, you cannot use it.

When you choose that option, just choose a preferred partnered bank and when the grant payment is issued, the applicant goes to the chosen bank to make a cash out.

SASSA has already indicated the need for SRD R350 Grant to have their own bank accounts as that speeds up the payment process and for efficiency.

Some of the popular banks you can sign up for their accounts are TymeBank, Capitec, Standard Bank, Fnb Bank, ABSA bank etc.

  24. Thobile Mkhanda

    My application is approved for August and September and I chose the personal bank account method , but I haven’t received any payment yet, even on my sassa card since I’m a caregiver who’s receiving a child support grant. So how will I know how I’m going to get paid?

  25. Brandon

    Hi DFlex or whomever that could assist me. So if possible could you kindly assist or advice me regarding what to do next for I have been struggling for weeks now.

    I requested for the SRD R350 Fund to be paid into my “Own Account” with Capitec I’ve receive a confirmation message indicating successful submission of the banking details.
    It’s been more that 2 months now, so I did a status check again where It stated that my Application is Complete.
    What follows is 2 text bars –
    i) the first bar with the heading “application id” followed by 6 digets(my unique application id code i presume) in the text bar.
    ii) The second text bar headed-“post office” – inside that text box – “not selected” (I believe, with a lot of doubt now, that it’s because I’ve requested for the “myown account” payment and never nominated a post office for collection)

    It has been approved for September 2021 aswell as for August 2021. Yet I have not received any payment until today. Neither have I received any sms or pay date to be able to collect at a post office(I wouldn’t/don’t even know at what post office to collect the SRD Fund-if that’s the case)

    I could imagine that there’s alot of other individuals struggling with the exact same issue.
    – So I’m Kindly asking on My own and probably on others behalf for helpful feedback regarding this issue.

    Thank you

    1. DFlex

      Brandon, the main issue according sources at sassa is the verification of the bank account….., i would suggest that you contact sassa on 0800601011 toll free (number might be very busy but keep trying until it goes through)

    Hi, I selected virtual post bank card … So how do I get the money now? What most I do , was approved with dates, do they send me a card number or how do I collect the money? Must I wait for a sms?

    1. DFlex

      If you have pay dates then go to post office or Boxer or p&p with your ID card

  37. Ipeleng

    I applied for srd on August and i was approved and the payday dates are there but when i go to Post office they say they didnt make a post office account for me and when i go to withdraw it from Boxer it declines what must i do?

    1. DFlex

      Check your payment method on the website, just make an attempt to switch or submit bank account details and check your activated payment method

    Hi I have choose cash send fnb I have paydate and my cash send has been verified how do I collect at fnb pls

      I think SASSA had a challenge with Cash send users. They asked them to submit their bank accounts or else the post office becomes their default payment method
