If You Have Applied For R350 And Waiting Approval, Read This

As part of SASSA’s effort to speed up the payment of the pandemic fund announced by the president to cushion vulnerable people and those who are heavily impacted by the novel virus. The agency through its Twitter page has assured applicants that payments will start tomorrow 15 May, 2020.

They have however urged the applicants to exercise patience as they try to sort out all those who qualify before payments are made.

Millions of people have applied for the social relief of distress grant of R350 for the next six months starting from May through October 2020.

SASSA has provided four main channels people can use to apply for the grant.

After successful submission of the applications, applicants will have to wait for SASSA to confirm using all the data at their disposal to verify the eligibility of the applicants.

If the applicants meet all the requirements, they will officially be notified and payment channel requested. The applicants will have to provide how they can receive the money either through their bank or mobile money transfer..

Applicants are therefore to be on alert as they wait for notification from SASSA.

Meanwhile, there is no other way for the applicants to know whether they are approved or not unless they receive official confirmation from SASSA.

You can leave your feedback and comments below the post using the form provided at the bottom of the post.

  1. Good morning since i have applied using USSD I’ve never received approval massage from sassa.it says thanks you have successfully submitted your application will let you know when your approved.

    So can I try to apply using WhatsApp or Web via email since I never get approved or get any feedback from sassa

    1. When you are approved, you will be notified officially from SASSA. Don’t give your details to anyone until that

  2. Good Evening
    I have been trying all the different ways of applying I have emailed for the past week I have sms’d and watts app and no response

    The resonse I got on watts app is
    I don’t understand. I am only a robot. And, although I love to help, I have a few shortcomings:

    – A long message scares me, I can only answer one question at a time.
    – At the moment I only speak English but I can say hello in several languages… I’m busy working on improving that!
    – You can ask me for _*HELP*_ anytime and I then I can explain what I can do!

  3. I replied using the email address that was provided. The following day i got a legal declaration and confidentiality notice without the attachedment. I have emailed and even went to sassa offices to get help without success. And i ended up repplying through the link.

    1. As far as your application was successfully submitted, sassa will have crosscheck if indeed you qualify after that they will officially get back to you for your payment account. Patience is the key.

  4. This government need to understand that this R350 is for relief….as i speak i don’t have anything to eat tomorrow….what i should is to wait ….wait wait wait till when?
    , do you still have to verify that we’re hungry noooooooo come on guys .. .

    1. Hi my husband apply in April on the 060 nr and still didn’t get any response from SASSA was he’s application submit.

  5. I have applied for unemployment grant relief grant i was told to make affidavit at the police station i did that and sent it via email i got a consent form i filled it and sent it so i haven’t received any sms or call or reply from the email address i sent to

    1. You will have to wait as SASSA is still sorting data out. When your application is approved they will contact you for your preferred payment mode

  6. Received form from gov chat. When want to complete they asked for otp. I did not receive one when they send it. Then they send a consent form to help because I asked for otp. That file said cannot open . Now I cannot send information they need

  7. So How are we going to know if we don’t qualify…are they going to send us the sms telling us that we don’t qualify or..?

  8. Hi. I applied via the used code and then again via watsapp, where I was given an otp number n filled the form. Also got a reference number but still no notification as if it was approved or not.

  9. I also applied for the R350 Grand but still waiting.Really in need.I am uunemployed,not receiving any money.Still waiting

  10. I’m approved but didn’t received any payout. I want to know if they will give a double payment if you didn’t received your frst payment in May.
