No need to Reapply for SASSA SRD Grant

Since the extension of the SASSA SRD Grant to March 2025, qualified beneficiaries don’t need to re-apply for the grant.

SASSA said the grant will continue as normal, those who had already applied, don’t need to apply for the extended SRD grant, unless previously cancelled.

However, applications will be reconsidered every month, for eligibility and most importantly, to ensure you still qualify or need to benefit from the unemployment grant.

The government extended the SRD grant to continue financially supporting people who have no means of income and were negatively affected by the pandemic.

Check SRD Grant Status

Yes, you don’t need to reapply for the R350 SRD grant but do you know if your application was processed?

Check your application status to get an understanding of the changes that might happen. This will give you a chance to fix any issues with your grant application at an early stage.

Not only that, you’ll be able to get your SRD grant payment date, allowing you the opportunity to collect the funds at the right time.

Grant Application Health

To keep your grant application and benefits in good faith with SASSA, please always keep your personal and financial information up-to-date.

If anything changes in your life, please let them know so that they can manage the distribution of the grant correctly to needy individuals.

You must frequently check your grant status for eligibility requirements.

Could the Grant be Made Permanently?

A very important question with a lot of uncertainty.

Understandably, the SASSA SRD grant is most needed by those unemployed with no means of income in the country.

When the grant was initiated in 2021, it was meant to run for a full year however pandemic affected a lot of people so the government decided to extend this to 2022.

And in 2023, when the next period was supposed to end, they again saw the need for the grant as a relief for millions of South Africans. So it was extended again to March 2024.

When President C. Ramaphosa was asked whether the grant could be permanent, he said. “We are looking at how we move beyond the SRD grant. There have been calls for the basic income grant to be introduced which will support a number of people, and that is being considered,”

So you’ll be pleased to learn that the SRD grant has officially been extended until 2025 with the opportunity to be made permanent.
