      • ek het ok niks van die r350 gekry nue ek werk nie en het ok nie n inkomste nie asb ek het ok die geld nodig dankie

  3. My cousin apply for distress grant March approved ,second payment decline of IRP 5 but he is not working since 2017 how did that happen?

  4. I have been approved and recieved the first 2 payments for june and July…August and september says paid on the online system and says pay day is 26th october but I didnt recieve my money…the first 2 payments were paid via std bank cash send…

  5. I don’t get a social grant for a covid 19 from the start till now ,The message comes from sassa says to me,my ID document does not match,I don’t know what does that means.

  6. My son been approved in July but even now not getting nothing ,if we check it showing he is in Database ,please explain where is gone wrong.

  7. I have applied more then 5 times because i was still drawing uif i dd not qualify. My last payment of uif was in August i applied again after that they keep on telling me i draw uif which is wrong. Me anf my wife is unemployed we have 4 children.. If i can get n job maybe cleaning your office i will do it. So please look at my case or i will go to the news paper about this..

  8. I hope that they extend the grand for those three months because this grant has been helping us a lot since we don’t have any source of income and as for students who qualify we are able to get some money for transportation to our tertiary institutions and/ for lunch since some of our parents are unemployed due to the covid 19 situation. I plead with Zulu to agree with the president on this issue ,
