IF YOU ARE APPLYING FOR THE R350 GRANT – TAKE NOTE OF THIS

SASSA announced it would take some of its services offline for essential ICT maintenance, including the SRD website. 

This means beneficiaries could struggle to access the website to check their grant status or submit applications on certain weekends.

SASSA furthermore said the application channel would be temporarily offline for some “downtown” from Friday through to late June.
