Perhaps we may take a big sigh from all the ups and downs that’s been happening around the R350 COVID-19 grant, as it finally comes to an end with the hope that everyone has received their payments.
Yes, there are calls for the government to extend the grand beyond October. The Grant has helped a lot of unemployed people in South Africa during the difficult times of the global pandemic, COVID-19. Even though COVID-19 is far from over, it has subsided.
Many were able to purchase groceries, and thus this is important for the government to continue giving out the grant until one gets employed.
SASSA has recently released a payment schedule for the month of November, and are as follows:
- Older Person’s Grants will be paid from 3 November 2020 ( Including all other grants that are linked to older person’s grants)
- Disability Grants will be paid from 4 November 2020 including any grant linked to these accounts
- All other grants will be paid from 5 November 2020
