Are you still interested in applying for the SRD R350 Grant? Have applied or still able to apply? Do you intend to apply? Of you don’t have the access to apply?

According to a statement released by SASSA, those who wish to be considered for the SASSA SRD R350 grant payments for the month of August 2021 must apply in the month of August.


Failure to do so will result in the forfeiture of the August payment.

SASSA says there will not be any arrears if one applies in a month other than the starting month of August.


For instance, if one applies in September, he or she will receive grants from September onwards, he or she will not be considered for the month of August.

From various sources, it is evident that a sizeable number of potential applicants have not been able to submit their applications due to the fact that, they do not have smartphones nor internet access.

We wish to bring this to the attention of SASSA to consider introducing a new USSD code otherwise, these citizens who are mainly poor, will be left out.
