January 2021 SRD PAYMENT Finally Approved
After waiting for weeks and the stress that comes with it, SASSA has finally started approving all those applicants who still qualify for the last payment of the SRD.
January 2021 marks the last payment of the grant introduced in May 2020 to help unemployed people to cope with the daunting effects of the nationwide lockdown.
There have been rumors going around the internet of possible extension of the SRD grant, but our checks reveal that there has not been any official statement to that effect.
So as it stands, there is no extension of the grant and therefore January 2021 will be the last and final payment.
However, those who have had issues with their payments will attended to accordingly.
For those who have been declined unduly still have the opportunity to appeal to the decision and SASSA is ready to relook at their appeal application for reconsideration.
Those who qualify after the reconsideration will be approved and paid subsequently.
