The South African Post Office has announced the pay dates for SRD beneficiaries who collect their R350 grant from their local Post Office.
The period from Thursday, 3 February 2022, to Tuesday, 8 February 2022, is set aside to pay old age, disability, and child grants.
The remainder of the month is devoted to distributing R350 SRD grants.
- Mondays: Beneficiaries with ID numbers beginning with 082 or 087
- Tuesdays: ID numbers starting with 083 or 088.
- Wednesdays: ID numbers beginning with 084 or 089
- Thursdays: ID numbers starting with 080 or 085.
- Fridays: ID numbers beginning with 081 or 086.
The dates are regularly posted on the Post Office’s Twitter and Facebook accounts. @PostOfficeSA is the handle.
Beneficiaries are urged to wait until they get an SMS verifying the availability of their award before visiting their local post office.
Beneficiaries who used their phones to apply for only one SRD grant can pick it up at any Pick ‘n Pay or Boxer supermarket. If a phone was used to apply for multiple appointments, it could only be picked up at a Post Office. This does not apply to recipients who decided to receive their award through a bank account.
SRD awards are available until March 31, 2022. Beneficiaries who have not yet gotten their grants, on the other hand, need not be anxious. To ensure that all outstanding commissions are paid, payments will be made through Post Office branches at least until June 2022.
