How to Collect Your Sassa SRD R350 Grant at Boxer

I’ve been approved for the R350 grant, and I’m one of those people who gets a little nervous about new things.

The SMS says I need to collect it at Boxer, but I’ve never done that before. I’m thinking, “Is it going to be complicated?

What if I mess something up?”

Well, I decided to go for it. I made sure I had my ID and my cellphone (the one I used for the application).

I figured out my nearest Boxer was Nkomo Village Boxer Superstores, and off I went.

Honestly, it was way easier than I thought! And you know what?

I want to tell everyone else how simple it actually is, especially for those who might be feeling a bit unsure, just like I was.

Checklist Before Going to Boxer

Check Your Approval: You need to be approved for the grant first.

You’ll get an SMS telling you it’s been approved and where to collect it.

Step-By-Step Guide to Collect Your R350 at Boxer

1. Find your Nearest Boxer:

If you don’t know where the closest Boxer is, ask a friend, family member, or neighbour if they can help you find it.

2. Inside the Store:

Look for the long counters where people pay for things – these are called the tills.

Go to any open till. If there’s a line (queue) to wait in, join the back of the line.

3. Talking to the Cashier:

When it’s your turn, greet the cashier politely.

Tell them clearly: “I have come to collect my R350 grant.”

4. Showing Your ID:

The cashier will ask to see your ID.

Hand it to them carefully.

5. Receiving the Code:

Keep your phone close by.

Wait for the SMS with the code to arrive. It may take a few minutes.

Read the code carefully from your phone screen.

6. Giving the Code to the Cashier

Tell the code to the cashier – don’t type it into their machine.

Don’t let anyone standing near you see the code.

7. Getting Your Money

The cashier will count out your R350 in cash.

Take the money and check it’s the right amount before walking away.

Put the money somewhere safe, like a purse, wallet, or pocket.

Important Reminders:

  • Don’t Be Afraid to Ask for Help: If you’re unsure of anything, ask the cashier, a store manager, or even a friendly shopper for help.
  • Your Code is Secret: Never tell anyone else your code, just like you wouldn’t tell them your bank PIN.
  • Keep Your Money Safe: Once you have your money, be careful. Try not to flash it around, and put it somewhere secure as soon as possible.
