SASSA

The South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) is a national agency of the government that distributes Social Relief of Distress Grant (SRD) on behalf of the Department of Social Development. Your SASSA application can be disapproved on account of wrong names or information and sometimes it can be because you do not qualify.

These social grants are available to help improve the standards of living in society and are given to people who are vulnerable to poverty and in need of state support, which include older people, people with disabilities, and people with young children.

SASSA Status messages and their meanings

When checking your status, you are essentially checking for a status message. Therefore, it is important to know what these status messages mean. This among others helps you to know whether you are approved for payment, or you need to appeal for reconsideration.

Here is a video that explains the various status messages and their meanings.

SASSA SRD Appeal for Reconsideration of declined application

SASSA reconsideration can be a complex and time-consuming process, but it can be a way to appeal a decision if you believe that your application was declined unfairly.

If you’ve applied for a SASSA grant and your status indicates that you have been declined, you may be eligible for reconsideration.

Step 1: Understand the reconsideration process

Before you apply for SASSA reconsideration, it’s important to understand the process. SASSA reconsideration is not a new application, but rather a review of your existing application to determine if there were any errors or omissions that may have led to the decline. You will need to provide evidence to support your case, such as medical reports, financial statements, or any other relevant documents that can help to prove your eligibility for the grant.

Step 2: Gather your supporting documents

To apply for SASSA reconsideration, you’ll need to gather all the necessary documents to support your case. This may include your ID, a copy of your declined application, any medical reports, financial statements, or any other documents that can help to prove your eligibility for the grant. Make sure that all your documents are up-to-date and accurate to avoid any delays in processing your application.

Step 3: Submit your SASSA SRD reconsideration application

Once you have gathered all the necessary documents, you can submit your SASSA reconsideration application. You can do this by visiting your local SASSA office or by submitting your application online through the SASSA website. Make sure to provide as much detail as possible and attach all your supporting documents to improve your chances of success.

Step 4: Follow up on your SASSA SRD reconsideration application

After submitting your SASSA reconsideration application, it’s important to follow up regularly to check on the status of your application. You can do this by calling the SASSA helpline or by visiting your local SASSA office. Be patient as the process may take some time, but continue to follow up until you receive a final decision.

If you’ve already lodged an appeal, you will then not need to send another or contact the SASSA office.

    1. If you did not change your payment information, please check with your bank or so. You need to be aware of the payment dates too, Now, Sassa grants are paid from the second day of every month. SASSA cannot also pay your grant into a mobile phone number which is registered to another person. Also if you added new bank details it will only be used for future payments after verification.
