The South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) has asked applicants to provide their banking details as this will result in the faster processing of their R350 grants.
How to change your banking details
If you are an approved beneficiary of the SASSA SRD R350 Grant and you want to change your banking details, follow the steps listed below.
Step 1: Visit the SASSA website https://srd.sassa.gov.za/
Step 2: Find the ‘How do I change my banking details
Step 3: Insert your ID number
Step 4: An SMS containing a secure link will be sent to the mobile phone number with which you registered during the application.
Step 5: Click on the link in the SMS
Step 6: Select the bank account details option. Insert your banking details (It must be your personal bank account).
SASSA cannot pay your grant into a mobile phone number that is registered to another person.
If people don’t provide their banking details they will have to collect their grant at the post office. What is important to note is that the Post Office does not issue SRD R350 grants on the days when they issue disability, old age and other social grants.
