The South African Post Office has released the SASSA R350 grant payment dates for March 2022. Here’s when you can collect your grant.
The South African Post Office (SAPO) has announced payment dates for beneficiaries who collect their SASSA R350 social relief of distress (SRD) grant.
The first week of January 2022 at the Post Office is reserved for elderly, child and disability grant payments. Thereafter, social relief of distress (SRD) grant recipients can head down to collect their R350.
As per usual, the days use the last three digits of the beneficiary’s ID number, and the system is designed to spread beneficiaries over the days of the week.
There will be no payment on 3,4, 7 and 8 March 2022 as old age grants, disability grants and childcare grants will be paid out.
The payment dates are as follows:
Beneficiaries who applied for only their own grant from their cellphone can also withdraw the grant at Pick n Pay and Boxer supermarkets. If the same phone was used to apply for several grants, then the grant is available only from a Post Office.
South African Post Office spokesperson, Johan Kruger said the Post Office has been made aware of instances where self-appointed queue marshals demand a bribe for a place in queues outside the Post Office.
“This practice is illegal and beneficiaries are encouraged to report it to the SA Police or to the Post Office’s Crime-buster hotline on 0800 020 070,” he said.
