The Sassa R350 payment days for March 2022 have been released. The South African Post Office (Sapo) has released new payment dates for the Social Relief of Distress (SRD) Grant. If you are a Sassa R350 SRD grant beneficiary, it’s important to know the days on which you may collect your grant.

Old age, disability and childcare grants will be paid out on 3, 7 and 8 March 2022 while the rest of the month will be dedicated to paying out SASSA R350 SRD grants.

In a statement on Wednesday, Sapo said 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 SRD payment on 3, 4, 7 and 8 March 2022 as old age grants, disability grants and childcare grants will be paid out., the following days will apply to those whose ID numbers end with the following digits:

“The system will also make it easier for beneficiaries to comply with social distancing requirements. Each day of the week is reserved for different beneficiaries depending on the last three digits of their ID numbers,” Sapo said.

No payments will be made on 21 March 2022 as it will be a public holiday.

The post office has introduced separate queues at its branches, also to reduce waiting time and to ensure social distancing.

“One queue is reserved for beneficiaries of the R350 grant while the other queue is for all other transactions. Where possible, official queue walkers will check ID numbers to ensure that the system is implemented,” Sapo 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 branch.

“This practice is illegal and beneficiaries are encouraged to report it to the South African Police Service or to the Post Office’s Crime-buster hotline on 0800 020 070.

“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,” Sapo.

For more information, clients are encouraged to call the South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) on 0800 60 10 11 from 08:00 to 16:00, Monday to Friday.
