Collect Your Sassa Old R350 Grants: R350 SASSA beneficiaries from the first round of grants are reminded to collect their unclaimed payments before the end of next month. This is according to Minister of Social Development, Zanele Zulu. The South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) money will fall away if you don’t collect by the cut-off date.
Beneficiaries who have not yet collected their unclaimed R350 grants from the first round should contact their nearest Sassa office to collect them.

Unclaimed Sassa Old R350 Grants
The Sassa saga seems to have no end in sight as the agency has now declared that beneficiaries who did not collect their grants by the 31st of August will not be able to do so after this date.
Therefore, they have extended the cut-off date to 30 November 2021. If the funds are not collected by the cut-off date, they will be forfeited to the State and used to fund other government priorities.
Beneficiaries are reminded to take their Identity Document (ID) with them to the Post Office when collecting their unclaimed grants. The agency is urging beneficiaries to collect their payments in order to avoid losing out on funds that could have helped them provide for their families.
What Happens If You Don’t Collect Your Sassa Old R350 Grants
Busisiwe Memela-Khambula, SASSA’s CEO, stated that “It’s an early Christmas for the first cycle’s approved beneficiaries who could not claim their benefits at the Post Office. We welcome this decision which was brought about by the visionary leadership of Minister Lindiwe Zulu.”

What happens if my SASSA grant lapses?
Beneficiaries have 90 days from the date of lapsing to submit an application for restoration. The social grant may be considered unclaimed and will expire if a beneficiary does not apply for its restoration within 90 days of its suspension. At that point, the beneficiary will need to submit a new application.
How do I reinstate my SASSA grant?
To request the reinstatement of a social grant, the application must include the reason for failing to react to the intention to suspend sent prior to the grant’s expiration. The beneficiary must also complete the administrative process that determines how they managed their finances during the suspension.
The application for reinstatement must be accompanied by a letter from SASSA stating the cause for the decision suspension or grant lapse.
What happens to uncollected SRD grants?
Grants which were not collected by the cutoff date are forfeited and given to the National Treasury to fund other government initiatives and priorities.
