Takeout From Sassa’Response to the Declined SRD Applicants

We have gathered some of the salient points of the official response from sassa regarding those applicants that have been declined declined for the Special Social Relief of Distress grants.

  1. The submitted information by the applicants are matched/compared with government agency such SARS database for the confirmation that the applicant does not receive any form of income.
  2. The personal details are also matched with the database of the Department of Home Affairs to confirm if the said ID and other details are accurate as they appear on the ID card. If they are not the same, the applicant is notified to rectify it using the online application platform.
  3. SASSA has admitted that the initial notification message sent to affected persons was vague and lacked clarity. Subsequently, all applicants who have had their applications declined will receive specific and detailed information of why their applications cannot be considered and hence rejected. Now sassa gives clear reasons why the application cannot be accepted.
  4. SASSA is working on an appeal mechanism to pave way for the affected applicants who still have issues to lodge appeals.
  5. By the close of the week, applicants will see the full reason why their applications were rejected.
  6. The appeal process will also be in an electronic format and its modalities will rolled out and communicated publicly later.
  7. A total of 1.3million applicants have been paid as at the close of Wednesday 17th June 2020. 6.9 million single applications were received and 3.2 million applications approved.
  8. All those applied in May and approved will paid their first payment by the close of June, 2020.
  9. SASSA will be crosschecking once again the submitted information of the applicants to verify if their financial circumstances have remained unchanged before payments are made for each of the subsequent months.
  10. In view of the just above points (9), there is no need to reapply for the subsequent months. New applicants who think they meet the criteria for qualifications can apply.
  11. Majority of the applicants who were declined were as a result of people who have their details in the Unemployment Insurance Fund (UIF) database or qualify for UIF. Such ones are advised to contact the Department of Employment and Labour’s to apply for UIF or do a follow up if applied already.
  12. SASSA says it has dedicated the Hotline and dedicated email for the SRD grant. Tel:0800601011 or email : srd@sassa.gov.za
  13. Applicants are advised to use their own personal banking information to receive payments NOT that of their neighbors or friends as that might lead to the application being denied or rejected.
