The South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) has made available the payment schedule for April 2024 of the Social Relief of Distress (SRD) Grant.

Many South Africans who receive this monthly support for their basic needs are very pleased with this news.

Breakdown of the Dates of Payment

SASSA will start distributing the SRD grants on Monday, April 1st, 2024.

This is different from the payment schedule for March 2024, which ran from March 25th to 29th.

Beneficiaries are recommended to look at their own payment status for the exact date within the period starting April 1st through onwards.

This can be done by visiting the SASSA website or calling the SASSA SRD Grant enquiry line.

Payments in Stages for Other Types of Grants

It’s worth noting that the South African Social Security Agency pays out several different social grants and the disbursement of SRD grants follows a different timetable for other categories.

Here’s a breakdown of the other grant types’ payment schedules:

Older Persons Grants: Payment starts on Wednesday, April 3rd, 2024.

Disability Grants: The distribution will start on Thursday, April 4th, 2024.

Children’s Grants: The beneficiaries can expect that their grants will be available from Friday, April 5th, 2024.

This method is staggered to ensure that all SASSA beneficiaries get their grants in a timely and organized manner.

Preventing Unwanted Crowds

SASSA kindly reminds its beneficiaries that there is no need to hurry to banks or cash points on the first day of the payment cycle.

As soon as the funds are deposited into your account, you will be able to withdraw them at your convenience.

This will help prevent unwanted crowds and long queues especially for vulnerable groups like the elderly and disabled.
