SASSA provides South Africans with a number of social grants from care dependent and child support to disability and war veterans.

The department recently set up the special Covid-19 R350 Social Relief of Distress Grant more commonly known as the SRD R350 grant. This is a grant of R350 per month for 6 months which is to be paid to individuals who are currently unemployed, do not receive any form of income, social grant or UIF payment. You can find out more about the Covid SRD R350 grant including the application process and eligibility criteria at the SASSA website here:

SASSA will be managing all R350 Grant Applications and social grant payments.

What happens if my request for a grant payment is denied?

When they check their grant status, some people discover that their payment has been declined with the response “Registered at SARS for PAYE” or “Receiving a source of income.” It should be noted that the applicant must be unemployed in accordance with SASSA requirements in order to be eligible for the grant (and not have any source of income).

In addition, no UIF or other grants were given. However, as of July 2021, those receiving a child support grant are not included in this. According to SASSA, when a request is currently denied, it is typically because the applicant earns more than R595 per month, excluding any child grants.

On the SRD website, you can file an appeal if your SRD application is denied. As previously mentioned, for applications that have been turned down, customers can use the website’s application for reconsideration tab to submit a service request.

The information about your R350 grant status and unpaid bills is listed below. See if you qualify for the grant during the current payment cycle.

Status Update for the SASSA R350 Grant Application

According to a statement from Social Development Minister Lindiwe Zulu, nine million South Africans have applied for the SASSA Covid SRD R350 grant. Long lines at the pay stations where the R350 is paid have been reported (due to the millions of applications) In order for the R350 to be paid directly into users’ accounts, the minister advises users to whenever possible provide their bank account information.

Cash payments can be made more quickly by providing your banking information as a payment method. The majority of grant recipients have been buying food with the funds.
