Before any payment is loaded on the system, the details of the approved beneficiary (name, surname and identity number) are checked against the bank account holder’s information, If the information does not match, the payment will not be loaded, until the information has been corrected.


SASSA has encouraged applicants of the COVID-19 Social Relief of Distress (SRD) R350 grant not to change their bank details frequently because every new account must be verified. This in turn delays the payment process for them as a new account has to be verified.
