There is no doubt that the COVID-19 pandemic disrupted the normal economic system. This resulted in many people losing their jobs and other sources of livelihoods. Therefore, the South African Government through SASSA (South African Social Security Agency) introduced the R350 grant as part of the COVID-19 Social Relief Of Distress Fund. The money is disbursed monthly and can be collected at various points across South Africa. The good news is that the R350 SASSA grant application can be done through WhatsApp. Now the question is, “How to apply for the R350 SASSA Grant on WhatsApp?” Here are the steps outlined below:

Step One: Simply save the following number on your mobile phone (+27) 082 046 8553 or you may save it directly like this +270820468553

Step Two: Send a message Sassa to the number you saved as instructed above via WhatsApp

Step Three: When you receive a message reply with the word SRD.

Step Four: You will then receive a message giving you two options on whether you are applying for yourself or someone else. So it is up to you to choose either option 1 or option 2.

Step Five: The next message will ask you to provide your full name, so you will have to answer by giving your FULL NAME (Full name simply means both your first name and last name as it appears on your ID).

Step Six: This time around, reply with your SURNAME only.

Step Seven: You will receive a link containing terms and conditions of the grant. If you agree with the terms and conditions please respond with a YES. If you do not agree reply with a NO.
