Social Relief of Distress(SRD) Grant applications have opened last Saturday on the 23rd of April 2022. This is for both new applications and reapplications. But only the line of application that is open is the SRD website.
Speaking on SABC News, Sassa Spokesperson said that the WhatsApp line for SRD applications will open on Monday but when we do a test on the line we found that it was not yet accepting applications.
