The month of October is set to come to an end in just a few days with SRD grants now being paid for October. It’s good to know how much you’ll be receiving in the following month.
The South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) Social Relief of Distress (SRD) grant is geared towards helping vulnerable South Africans who are unemployed and have no source of income. The grant is set to come to an end in March 2024.
With the SRD grant came many rumours and fake news stories. One of these are that the grant is R500 or even R700 so it’s important to set the record straight.
So how much are SRD grant beneficiaries getting for the month of November? Well, in November, SRD grant beneficiaries can expect to receive R350.
Why Hasn’t The R350 Grant Been Increased?
According to the Department of Social Development, the lack of an increase is due to “fiscal constraints.” Despite the department’s request to the National Treasury for an increase, it was not favourably considered due to these fiscal constraints.
Both the Social Development Minister, Lindiwe Zulu, and Brenda Sibeko, the Deputy Director-General at the department, have expressed their desire for an increase in the SRD grant. However, there has been no official confirmation of a grant increase, and it currently remains at the value of R350 per month.
