SASSA has announced that beneficiaries are now able to change their R350 grant payment method whenever they feel like it. Continue reading to get all the details and also find a guide to changing your grant payment method.
“Payment method for the special COVID-19 SRD grant can now be changed on any day of the month,” is the latest update from SASSA.
Previously, beneficiaries were only allowed to change their SRD grant payment method during the first week of every month. Now, it has changed to whenever beneficiaries feel the need to do so.
This means that should beneficiaries want to change their payment method to receive their grant through a bank account instead, they can do this anytime.
SASSA also said:
Beneficiaries of the COVID-19 SRD grant are encouraged to use their bank accounts to receive this grant to avoid overcrowding at the post offices.
