To ensure that only deserving applicants are given this grant. So far 3.2 million South Africans have been verified and approved for the SRD funds. Of the 3.2 million approved, 1.2 million people have received their first payment. Sassa has identified verifications as the cause for the slow delay in processing and approvals and ultimately the dispersing of funds.
Sassa have confirmed in their social media account that as long as the applicant meets the criteria for a month they will indeed receive their grant. This also means that for each and every month Sassa will verify an approved applicant to check to see if they still qualify. Sassa also referred to the fact that there is no fixed date for Social Relief fund but approved applicants who still qualify for the month will indeed receive the grant.
