Applicants are gnashing their teeth and just don’t understand why sassa keep tossing them here and there.
There seems to be no clear explanation for the approval and payment of the srd grant of R350.
For example, some applicants have been approved since June but have no pay date and sassa is not giving any clear reason why such undue delay in the release of funds.
Payments were somehow smooth prior to August payout but since August payments have been delayed.
People have been approved and given payday but not received their money.
Others too are strongly of the view that, they are unduly declined for no tangible reasons.
Putting all these together, there are speculations being spread out on social media platforms, that government and for that matter sassa may have ran out of cash. According to these aggrieved applicants, that’s the reason why sassa has resorted to tactics just for them to get frustrated and eventually give up.
It may be recalled that, Auditor General reports indicated that about 30k government employees were found to be on the payroll of the Unemployment Grant which will be ending next month October officially.
