When will the Post Office stop paying the R350 SRD grant?

On Tuesday, 10 May, the South African Post Office (SAPO) announced that it will no longer pay out the R350 Social Relief of Distress (SRD) grant. 

The big question now is when exactly will the Post Office stop paying out the grant to beneficiaries? 

WHY WILL THE SA POST OFFICE STOP PAYING THE R350 SRD GRANT? 

The Post Office said a new round of applications for the R350 SRD grant has opened which now includes an option where beneficiaries can receive their grant from any Pick n Pay, Boxer, Shoprite, Checkers or USave merchant. 

It strongly advised beneficiaries to include this option as branches will no longer pay out the R350 SRD grants.

If one has already reapplied for the SRD grant, they can still select the option to collect it from any Pick n Pay, Boxer, Shoprite, Checkers or USave.

Spokesperson, Johan Kruger said the R350 SRD grant beneficiaries must have their own cell number to withdraw their grant at supermarkets.

“If you do not have your own number, it is best to get your own SIM card and use that number to apply for your grant. You can also change your cell number on the above website.”

Kruger said the Post Office will stop paying out the grant when the new round of payments come into effect, during the course of the month (May). 

“It will be gradual because not all beneficiaries are approved immediately,” he said.
