Are you approved for the SASSA SRD R350 grant application but you have not received any SMS from the Post Office for collection?

Indeed, Post office together with the SASSA came up with an idea that, in order to reduce overcrowding at the various Post offices around the country, applicants who have been approved with pay dates and collecting their grants from the Post Office should have received an SMS notification asking to collect grants.


In addition to this, the last three digits of the applicant’s ID number will be used for collection on a particular date.

But the problem associated with the new SMS stuff is that, last year something similar was said but little was done.


People who were approved long time bit never received SMS from Post and sometimes they are turned away.

How frustrating that can be! And this year too, they are preaching the same sermon which they themselves find it difficult to abide by.

Corruption at the Post office

Post Office Payments were marred by so many corruption allegedly perpetrated by some workers of the post office with others collecting R50 from applicants.

Some applicants too reported some cases where when they went to collect their grants only to be told someone else has collected their grant in a different province. Which obviously does not make any sense!


The tellers were supposed to check the identity of the collector before issuing out cash but all these were reported but nothing was done about it.

But in fact, if you have been approved and you have not received any SMS, probably post office is waiting for the SASSA regular grants payments to be completed for the month of September 2021 on the 7th of September 2021.

After that we can expect payments from the Post Office and possibly SMS will start coming up.

Post Office Working on USSD Code

Post Office spokesperson has once said, they are working on an USSD code which will help applicants to dial to find out if they have grants at the post office for collection.

It is our hope this code will be implemented so that applicants who are already finalizing unstable have to sometimes travel with the little they have on them and only to be told there is no money for collection or no cash available.

Post Office must beef up their security and make sure receipts are issued anytime applicants come to collect grants.

Those charging R50 before issuing payments must be made to refund the amount or disciplined.

The unemployment rate in the country is too much and the youth should have their fair share of the national cake. Government should create employment opportunities for them.
