SASSA offers the Social Relief of Distress (SRD) grant to individuals and families facing crises or emergencies as a temporary form of financial assistance. The grant provides a monthly payment of R350 for a duration of up to six months, depending on the applicant’s circumstances. To qualify for the grant, applicants must be South African citizens, permanent residents, or registered refugees under the Department of Home Affairs. They need to meet specific criteria, including having no income or an income below R3500 per month, and experiencing distress caused by an emergency or disaster.

Applicants have the option to apply for the SRD grant through various channels such as online, WhatsApp, email, or in-person at a SASSA office. During the application process, they will be required to provide personal information, income details, and supporting documentation. Once the application is submitted, SASSA will review it and notify the applicant of the outcome. Successful applicants can expect to receive their first payment within a few weeks, distributed through the South African Post Office. A bank account will be necessary for receiving the payment.

It is essential to understand that the SRD grant is intended as a temporary measure and should not be relied upon as a long-term source of support. If an applicant continues to meet the eligibility criteria after the initial six-month period, they may be required to reapply for the grant.
