Has SASSA Declined Your SRD R350 Grant Application?

Sassa under fire for ‘wrongful declined’

Exactly month ago, sassa claimed it has started paying the qualified applicants of the Special social relief of distress srd, which was later turned to be test payment for 10 people out of which 9 were successful.

Since then, sassa has been approving and paying some applicants and still most people have had their applications pending almost after one month without any proper response.

They wondered why can’t sassa tell them if they qualify or not.

After so many stories from sassa, today 15 June, 2020, hoping to see their status updated only to be met with SMS from sassa saying their applications have been declined because they have other sources of income.

This has left many wondering because they claim they have been unemployed for over four years or more.

An they don’t understand why they have declined that stipend that can actually serve as a source of sustenance.

According to them, they see no tangible reasons why sassa would do such a thing and are now alleging that sassa is using this as an excuse to deny them what’s their due.

Below are some of the comments so far received on social media :

“IT’S SEEMS LIKE SASSA DECLINED MANY PEOPLE WITHOUT A VALID REASON STATING THAT THEY VE GOT OTHER SOURCES OF INCOME BUT IT IS WRONG TO PLAY WITH PEOPLE’S LIVES LIKE THIS Period”

“It’s Sad to see people that don’t really qualify for the Social Relief Grants getting paid while qualifying citizens are still waiting for approval 😒Rsa sh*t country🚮😪”

“Sassa declined us and says we receiving income..when we hav been unemployed for more than 3 years…Sassa need to get there facts straight before an uprising happens…when we try and call them to state our queries their lines are busy we can’t even get thru…#SassaMustFail”

“Declined!
..”you currently have income from other sources”…

I’m confused which sources r thy referring to..cz I’m not receiving any cent …
Yet I agree I was receiving money from Nsfas then later Nsfas rejected me… which means from there I didn’t receive any cent…

Then nou Boom..U currently what what …aibo..!!.sassa!”

It is disheartening to see people who have lost their jobs or others who have remained unemployed for many years and had to go through this stress, which they had wished the promise was never made in the first place.

Below are screenshot of some copies of the said message that informed applicants their applications have been declined :

With no other income at all what resources are they using to say that there I have income from other sources. Plse explain and how do i contact them to clarify this.

    1. Hello Belinda, it might be your employment history. So all of us are calling on SASSA to be specific with the content pf the SMS. They are to reveal to applicants why they decline their application.

  2. ALL THIS IS JUST MAKING LIFE IMPOSSIBLE .PLEASE PROVE /SHOW THE APPLICANT WHERE THEY ARE REGISTERED IN EMPLOYMENT OR WHEN THEY COLLECTING UIF …the whole point was to assist the unemployed now WHO has been employed these past months ….even the vendor was not ….stop thieving by making excuses that do not exist just say …WE WILL KEEP YOUR R350 …if you lucky you might get it this is a lottery srd grant…..do what is normally done ….give 1 in 1000 people the srd so it doesnt look too bad…..if the computer data base systems are picking up people working who have not for more than a year or more OR vice versa ….the data system is just unreliable!!! ….. what can be trusted ???To step away from the srd grant for a second …when I tried getting a disability grant ….the amount of DIFFERENT people I had to go through to collect a form and then scrutinised carefully and of course the district surgeon etc etc…..and i was turned down SO i will never understand how people collect disability grants for “ghosts” applicants that do not exist ….you mean that all these different people each seen all these non existent people ….wow our system is amazing ….
