The Social Relief of Distress (SRD) grant currently benefits more than 10 million people, however not all recipients have received payments.
Grant recipients are being urged by the South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) to switch their payment method. Due to problems with the cash send payment option, this has happened.
The cash send opinion is not currently available, according to Sassa, because the banks are still finalizing their contracts with the company.
Sassa advises clients to pick between having the money put into their bank account or picked up at the post office in order to access their SRD award funds.

You must therefore give the information for your own personal bank account.
According to Paseka Letsatsi, a spokesperson for Sassa, there are now just about 110 000 unpaid customers.
In order to make sure that those who selected the Cash Send option receive all the money that is owed to them, he continues, Sassa is extremely close to reaching an agreement with the banks.
Letsatsi stated, “We simply want to repeat that even if March has to arrive and we have to shut down, we will never shut down until the last person is paid the last cent.
March 2022 is the planned expiry date for the SRD grant.
