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. Hi I’ve used the *134*7737# and it said it was successful submitted no approval yet .

    3. Dear Mr/Mrs

    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.
