R350 grant payment schedule for November

Managed by Sassa, the Department of Social Development‘s R350 Social Relief of Distress grant is in its third cycle, helping more than 7.5 million eligible South Africans since May 2020.

Instead of the fixed payment schedules of Sassa’s permanent grants, the date of the R350 grant payments has not been specified up until now. This is because the department needs to verify recipients’ eligibility on a monthly basis.

However, Sassa has recently introduced a structured payment date system, making sure recipients know when their grant funds will be available for collection.

For November, beneficiaries of the R350 grant can expect their grant to be paid between the 24th and 30th of November.

During this payment week, Sassa strongly recommends recipients check their Sassa status on the SRD website to confirm the exact date their grant payment will be in their bank accounts.
