SASSA R350 Grant Applications Process in 2023

The Social Relief of Distress Grant

A Social Relief of Distress Grant (SRD Grant) is administered under Appendix 32 of the 2004 Social Assistance Act (Act No. 13 of 2004) and is implemented with the concurrence of the Minister of Finance.

Asylum seekers, refugees, and special permit holders between the ages of 18 and 60 can apply for the Social Relief of Distress Grant (SRD Grant). People with insufficient means, those not receiving social grants on their behalf, those not contributing to or eligible to receive UIF payment, and those with no other financial support have access to this grant.

There are only a few days left to apply for the SASSA’s Special Relief of Distress grant, which provides recipients with R350 per month. SASSA offices should be contacted if applicants do not receive their social aid payments.

SASSA’s R350 grant applications are due April 30, 2023. SASSA Special Relief of Distress (SRD) grant applications must be submitted by April 30, 2023 to qualify.
