While applying for the SASSA Grant (SRD R350), applicants mostly complain that when they check their SRD R350 grant application status they observe at the post office field “not selected,” and they wonder “What that means?”.
“Post Office Not Selected for SRD R350” means that the procedure has not yet been processed. Or it will be done soon. This happens because of the failure in the bank account verification process.
Therefore, applicants should provide all their details and personal information accurately. Because their payment would only be sent to their registered bank, not any other bank, to avoid scams and fraud.
To overcome this problem, SASSA allows the people who want to apply for the grant to select any Post Office location to get paid. And this can be done by visiting the recent official website of SRD R350 grants.
If you do not decide or choose a specific location, you will again receive the status or notification of “application not selected.” In that case, you can collect grants from the SAPO branch of your choice.
First, you must click on SASSA’s website and enter your ID and phone number. Then click on the button to send the pin. Then a pin will be sent to your number, and you must enter the pin to display available branches. Then click on submit and wait for the instructions.
At the end of this process, follow all the convenient guidelines. And then again submit. This will be the default post office from where you will collect your grant.
SRD (The Social Relief of Distress Grant) is reliable for all African citizens, including refugees, asylum seekers, and Special people ranging from the age of 18 to the age of 60 with poor income and resources who are not able to receive funds from other grants.
Accessing SRD 350 Via Advance Collaboration
SASSA creates an advanced platform with the help of mobile phones and computers, where every citizen plays an active role in governance. That platform is called GovChat. GovChat and SASSA made it easier for citizens to access the SRD 350 with the help of an application.
I felt very hurdles in the pandemic due to meager income and unemployment. In such cases, a fund like SRD R350 is essential to overcome all such financial problems. Such funds eventually result in restoring the loss made for any reason.
What does not selected mean?
Not selected means not chosen for some criteria.
Can I collect my SRD at the post office without an SMS?
Receiving an SMS is a positive signal for collecting grants; you will not get funds if you do not receive an SMS.
In short, a Post Office not selected for a grant means that those who want to collect grants must choose a particular area and register themselves with accurate information.
