Those who are qualified to get grants from SASSA will now be able to access people grants, and they will also be able to use their SASSA cards at all points of sale, including ATMs and merchant stores. This new capacity will be available to those who are eligible to receive grants from SASSA.
The National State of Disaster, which had been declared at the time that the SRD award was being given out, was terminated in April 2022 after it had been in existence throughout that time period. Since it was announced by President Cyril Ramaphosa that the grant would be extended for another year, the Department of Social Development has been diligently working on developing a legal framework that would govern how the grant will be paid out. This framework would be in place since President Ramaphosa made the announcement.
Because the new legislative framework of the SASSA R350 award includes additional qualifying and assessment criteria, recipients who have previously received assistance are required to reapply for it if they wish to continue receiving it. This is because the new legislative framework includes additional qualifying and assessment criteria.
According to the department's announcement, "fortunately, the entire application system remains a purely digital process, thereby enabling quick access and turnaround times."
