Another 59,000 people got R350 Social Help (SRD) for distress over the last couple of months after their demise.
Lindiwe Zulu revealed this information data in the Office's population enrollment through the South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) to assure that social or SRD-supported people are the proper recipients.
Nonetheless, a part of the dead were accounted for late. Reacting to a composed inquiry from parliamentary investigator, Brigitte Masango, Lindiwe Zulu stated that social grants can be paid after an person passed away. "The accompanying records is diagnosed with payments receipts gave after the recipient's passing date. This information is not specific to the grant, but may get numerous grants. It desires further research to have the choice to differentiate this for each type of grant", she stated.
"From January 2020 to October 31, 2021, an aggregate of 214 344 R350 grants were eliminated after the recipient's passing, but this does not reflect the sum surely paid to the recipient. The sum paid may have successfully been accumulated by Sapo (South Africa Mail center) or returned to Sassa.
"The total number of R350 Social Help grant terminated after the passing of the recipient for that period is 59 089. This is moreover the whole wide variety of grants terminated, but the actual wide variety can be paid after it is known to were gotten. A general compromise from Sapo", Lindiwe Zulu added.
These culprits who are trying to defraud the state of the R350 grants should be sentenced for fraud and given a fair sentence as some applied but didn't receive the R350 grant. More people might have applied for this grant but not getting their payments. Please share your thoughts below and follow me for more insightful news
