Update to SASSA SRD R350 Grant Bank Account Information

The Social Relief of Distress Grant (SRD Grant) is administered in terms of section 32 of the Social Assistance Act, 2004 (Act No. 13 of 2004) and is implemented with the concurrence of the Minister of Finance.


The Social Relief of Distress Grant (SRD Grant) is meant for South African Citizens, Refugees, Asylum Seekers and Special Permit Holders who are between the ages of 18 and 60 years, who have insufficient means, who do not receive social grants on behalf of herself/ himself or who are not contributing to or eligible for UIF payment, and have no financial support from any other source.

The South African Social Security Agency continues to aid South African people through the Social Relief Distress grant, which strives to alleviate citizens’ incapacity to satisfy their fundamental necessities.

However, the agency is currently failing to ensure that every eligible applicant receives their grant payment on time due to erroneous information given.

As a result, SASSA asks all Covid-19 SRD R350 grant candidates to provide accurate banking information. This is done to avoid late payments and slow application processing.


Old candidates can also use the internet to update their financial information.
