SRD Reconsideration Payments Underway
The agency captioned their message as follows “The COVID19 SRD grant reconsideration payments are now underway!”

Collect at Approved Retailers
Sassa also said “ Do not go to the Post Office for collection of your SRD grant. Use any approved retail outlet namely Pick n Pay, Checkers, Shoprite, Boxer or USave.
The Appeal Process
The appeal or reconsideration process for the SRD grant allows those who have been rejected to get another chance to be evaluated or considered for the grant.
In their previos message Sassa indicated that those who appealed from August 2021 and their applications for reconsiderations were successful, will be processed by the end of June 2022. “Beneficiaries whose reconsideration applications outcome were successful, will be paid accordingly.”
Payments From August 2021
Sassa also said that payments for those successful reconsideration applicants will be done after the applications have been processed. “Reconsiderations from August 2021 are expected to be processed by end June 2022 and payments will then happen thereafter.”
