IF APPLYING FOR THE R350 GRANT – TAKE NOTE OF THIS
SASSA announced that it would take some of its services offline for essential ICT maintenance, including the SRD website.
This means that grantees might find it difficult to access the website to check the status of their grant or submit applications on certain weekends.
SASSA further stated that the application channel will be temporarily offline for some “downtown” from Friday until the end of June.
