SRD R350 SASSA Grant Applications Status Check Payment Dates, Bank Account Details – Latest Updates

In case you are still not sure what is ongoing with regards to the applications, status check, payment dates and bank account submission, then this article is for you.

This is what we have gathered so far after the back and forth, the confusion and deactivated and partial operation of SRD R350 Grant Application website.

Application SRD R350 Grant

So far according to reports released by SASSA, the updated number of applications so far received as at 18th August 2021 was more 8 million.

Application Channels that are available and functional are:

1. the main website

2. The GovChat website

3. WhatsApp : 082 046 8553

4. SASSA Chat Bot which appears on SASSA main website

5. Moya app which is not official but can still be used to apply for grant.

So far the USSD code which was promised by SASSA has still not materialized.

If you are still struggling to submit a new application, please see and closed friends or relatives to offer you the needed support so that you too can submit the application. If you want to be considered for the month of August 2021 then you have to submit your application in this month.

Checking of Status SRD R350 Difficulties

SASSA realizing the pressure on their online application platform, deactivated some of the modules including the application status checking, bank account switch or submission after application is done among others.

Due to this applicants are not able to check their status online and are always met with failed messages.

Although SASSA has assured that the check status module will be activated by the close of the week.

For the mean time if you want to check your SASSA SRD R350 grant status for payments then you can contact SASSA directly on the toll-free number 0800601011, they will ask for your ID number tell you your application status either pending, approved or whatever.

Submission of Bank Account Info

Those who are applying for the first time have the opportunity to submit bank account details upfront especially if the person uses the main SRD R350 application website, however GovChat will ask the applicant to wait after 24 hours to complete the application with the bank account option.

But in most cases, it fails to load so that the applicant can do so.

So if you found yourself in that situation where you are not able to update or switch to your preferred payment method, then your default payment option will be automatically the Post Office.

Because as discussed earlier, that module that allows the applicant to update or switch payments option after submitting the application, is currently deactivated which according to SASSA, will be reactivated after September 1st.

Payments Dates for August 2021

For those who chose and submitted their correct bank account details upfront, SASSA will verify and confirm the bank details before payment is issued. However those using other forms of payment methods especially post office will have wait to receive SMS from the Post Office asking them to go and collect their grants.

Ewallet or Cash Send too will receive SMS if their payments are ready.

Currently, payments are ongoing and even yesterday some applicants who are using bank accounts like TymeBank customers received their payments.

Meanwhile Post Office has released payments scheduled for those applicants who will be receiving their cash at the post office.

They will use the last three digits of applicant’s ID number to determine the collection date in the week which can be found below :

You simply have to be on a watch out for an SMS either from bank or from the Post Office for payments or collections.

  24. Both me and my fiance applied in August – now after checking every month it says “approved” and “active” We have not receive ANY money so we are owed for August, September, October and will most likely have to wait for November.

    Come on Government – people voted for you and you are letting us down – no wonder there is so much crime and corruption because people have no jobs, no food and children to feed.

    I would appreciate Government to expedite payment for all with backpay asap.

    As I see nobody is responding to the people’s grievances. But when it comes to elections you are very quick on the ball. A very frustrated South African.
