Ever since the President announced the social relief of distress (SRD)grant millions of people applied for the grant of R350 which was to paid in a period of six months starting from May 2020 to October 2020. In the process for SASSA to ascertain of an applicant qualifies or not, the submitted documents of the applicant has to be screened thoroughly and vigorously goin through a series of government agencies such SARS, Home Affairs, NSFAS etc. to make sure the applicant indeed qualifies.

Earlier, it turns out that about half of the number that a[applied do not qualify which was characterized by agitations from he affected applicants and the general public. Due to this public outcry, SASSA had to relook at the criteria it used to measure applicant’s eligibility.

As a result of the second look, a new and updated database was generated. The new database later revealed that about 85% of the declined applicamnts do qualify and have been apprtoved to take their grant from various payment outlets including the Post Office and the individuals preffered bank account.

Appealing Your Decline

After the reversal fo the earlier mass decline of the srd R350 grant, hundreds of thousands of people have still been declined and there seems there is no way to appeal or seek redress for their decline. On 9th July, 2020, SASSA issued a statement reaffirming their resolve to make sure that every declined applicant is given a voice.
