The Social Relief of Distress (SRD) grant, introduced in May 2020, was due to come to an end in March 2022 but was extended in February this year to March 2023. But all those who got the grant have to re-apply in the new cycle.

All applicants will have to undergo a means test and anyone earning R350 a month or more will be disqualified. Previously, means tests were only conducted if applicants appealed against a decision to reject their application.

Approved applicants do not need to re-apply for the grant each month, but checks will be made each month to find out if the applicant still qualifies.

During the means testing, banks will confirm whether the ID number of the applicant is linked to any bank account, allowing the South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) to check whether the applicant has multiple bank accounts.
