Latest update on R350 SASSA grant payment

R350 grant latest: Minister Zulu drops hint on when payments will restart

Lindiwe Zulu may have just provided us with the answer everyone has been waiting for, in regards to payment dates for the R350 grant.

Social Development Minister Lindiwe Zulu is scheduled to address the media on Wednesday 4 August, to present more details about the revival of the R350 grant. The popular SASSA scheme, which will now run until March 2022, is set to cost R27 billion to fund – but this commitment will provide a safety net for millions of struggling South Africans.


Announced during his last address to the nation, President Ramaphosa confirmed that the R350 grant would be open to MORE applicants. Unemployed carers who also receive other SASSA payments can now receive the SRD handouts.
