When checking the status, some applicants have voiced concern that “not selected” has been placed as their SRD R350 grant application status.
In this way, SASSA allows applicants to choose a post office location so they can be paid at that post office, which is especially useful for individuals who prefer to collect their grants from the Post Office.
As a result, applicants can select the SAPO location for ease and collection on the official website of the reestablished SRD R350 award.
If you do not specify a location, you may collect your grants from any SAPO branch of your choosing. The message “post office not selected” will appear if you do not specify a specific place.
