There have been several rumors going round social media indicating that SASSA has finally started making payments for the last batch of the SRD grant.
As at now, March and April are all Approved but have no pay dates according to official status of recipients.
But some have taken to social media to express their happiness for receiving R700 for the month of March and April.
Indeed all those making those claims have not been able to provide evidence that they have been paid.
Meanwhile, all those who are collecting their grants from the banks can check their bank accounts balances to verify if indeed they are paid.
The social grants were introduced to help unemployed people to cope with the harsh economic situation as a result of the global pandemic.
Several civil society organizations are calling for the extension of the SRD grant or the introduction of basic income grant for South African citizens from 18-59 years of age.
