The Social Relief of Distress Grant



About the Social Relief of Distress Grant (SRD Grant):

The SRD Grant is authorized under section 32 of the Social Assistance Act, 2004 (Act No. 13 of 2004) and is executed with the approval of the Minister of Finance.

The SRD Grant is intended for South African Citizens, Refugees, Asylum Seekers, and Special Permit Holders aged between 18 and 60 years. This grant is for individuals who have limited financial resources, do not receive social grants on their own behalf, are not contributors to or eligible for UIF payment, and lack financial support from any other sources.

Please Note:

All information will be electronically available, eliminating the need for document uploads. Make sure you provide SASSA with your mobile number, which we can use to reach you for application status updates.

If SASSA declines your application, you have the right to appeal their decision. You can accomplish this by submitting an appeal to the Department of Social Development for each month in which they reject your application. The notification of your application’s rejection will include instructions for initiating the appeal process. Neglecting to request an appeal for each declined month will result in upholding the initial decision.
