If you are a recipient of the SASSA SRD R350 grant, you might been waiting for quite too long to receive your March 2021 payments.
As SASSA has explained for the past few days ago why the unusual delay in the payments of grant for the months of March.
Prior to today, sassa jumped over the March 2021 Payment and rather paid for the month of April. According to SASSA, this was largely due to the fact March was the end of the financial year for government and all departments had to submit all financial reports.
SASSA granted various interviews across various media outlets explaining and apologizing for what has happened.
As at Sunday evening, most recipients have seen a change on their status, this time the pay dates showing.
Most of the people have 29th April 2021 as their payments dates and are likely to receive their grant a night before the pay date for those who uses bank to collect their grant.
In one interview, the spoke person of sassa assured that all outstanding grants will be paid by the end of April 2021 and has been so accordingly.
It must be noted that after this payment the SASSA SRD R350 grant comes to an end.
But some groups of people including the Black Sash are calling on government to once again extend the SRD indefinitely looking at the current economic climate in the country.
