Ever since SASSA opened the applications for the unemployment grant of R350 otherwise known as Special Social Relief of Distress, millions of people applied.
Last week SASSA started sending approval messages to some qualified applicants to submit and confirm their banking details.
They did a test run and paid only 10 people to see if the general payments will be successful. Out of the ten, 9 were successful and the remaining one issue was sorted out successfully.
Since then SASSA has been sending approval messages to more and more people to submit their payment details. This week, in sassa official Statement, it was revealed that even those without bank accounts can still use their registered mobile wallet or ewallet the receive payment.
This became necessary since most of the applicants are unemployed and have no bank accounts.
Now what has become a headache to most applicants is the fact that they can not check their status to see if they qualify or not (although SASSA stated the qualifying criteria).
Such people are in limbo and worried since they don’t have a means to Check their status as to whether they qualify or not.
