In related SASSA news, it has already been noted that the organization has asked recipients of the R350 social relief of distress (SRD) award to refrain from often changing their bank information.
According to SASSA, payments may be delayed due to frequent changes in bank information. Many candidates used social media during the last week to vent about having their grant applications rejected or dealing with delayed reimbursements.
The often changing bank information on the SRD website was cited by SASSA as one of the causes of the payment delays. The organization noted that because the beneficiary must be confirmed whenever bank information is altered, there will be a delay.
