The South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) has outlined the detailed payment schedule, which should provide comfort and certainty to those individuals currently receiving this assistance. According to the agency, the beneficiaries will receive the R350 payments in four instalments throughout August 2022. The first of these payments will be on the 15th and then followed by the 25th and the 30th. The final payment will be made on the 31st of August 2022.
In order to ensure all beneficiaries are aware of the dates and payment status, Sassa has made it easy to check the status of payment via their website. All that is needed is the beneficiary’s ID number or Sassa account number, and a password. Once the beneficiary’s information is verified, the payment status will be clearly visible.
The payment of this assistance is being made possible through the interdepartmental collaboration between the Department of Social Development and the South African Post Office. This assistance is also supplemented by other government entities, such as the Provincial Government, that are helping to achieve the goal of providing ongoing support for beneficiaries.
The National Treasury has stated that this assistance forms a critical part of the social security network and is helping to combat poverty, inequality and deprivation. The R350 payment is in addition to the Old Age Pension, Social Grants, and Disability Grant.
We are confident that the announcement of these payment dates will bring comfort and certainty to those individuals currently relying on these payments and wish them all a financially secure August 2022.
