SASSA Payments Dates

How to Find Out if Your SASSA R350 is Approved?

To check if your SASSA R350 grant application is approved, visit the SASSA website and enter your ID number. You’ll also receive email or SMS notifications from SASSA.

SASSA Approved but no Payment Date

This problem can be of several reasons like:

  • SASSA delay: This delay could be because of sassa because they would be still verifying and taking time to give you the payment date or there are following steps you can take.
  • Contact Sassa: For assistance or information regarding your SASSA R350 grant, you can contact the Sassa Contact Centre through two main channels. Initially, you can reach them by dialing 0800 60 10 11. Alternatively, consider visiting local SASSA offices in person for a more direct inquiry.
  • Check your bank details: Make sure that your banking details are submitted and verified. Or you may need to change the banking details if there causes any issue in them.

Why is my Sassa Status declined?

There can be many reasons why your SASSA r350 status declined. Some of them are discussed below:

  • Minimum Bank Balance Requirement: If the money in your bank account is more than the minimum required amount, which is 624 Rands, your application for the R350 fund might be canceled. This fund is specifically available for people with no income. The only purpose of the grant is to help them with essential needs like food and electricity. During the verification process, SASSA checks your bank balance, and if it exceeds the specified threshold, your approved application may not result in receiving the funds.
  • Exclusion Criteria: Your application would get declined if you are registered for uif, nsfas, gov payroll or any other government funds.
    Your application would not be approved if you do not meet age criteria.
  • Incorrect Information: If the details you provide in your application for the R350 fund are incorrect, it can create complications in the approval even for all months. SASSA follows a systematic procedure where your ID number, income, bank balance, account number, mobile number, address, and living conditions are thoroughly examined using the government’s database. If there are mistakes in your details, it can make it hard for Sassa officials to move your application to the next step.
  • Delays and Appeals: If your bank balance is below R624 and your details are correct, delays in payment aren’t your fault. With over 7 million applicants for the SRD program alone, the organization takes time to verify applications, causing potential delays or cancellations due to the high volume. If you think there’s a mistake then lodge an appeal.

SASSA Application Pending

A pending application status indicates that your SASSA application has not been approved yet and your application is still in the process of verification and scanning your details.

Upon approval of your application, SASSA r350 will send you a text message to the phone number you provided. In this message, they will request your bank details. Once you provide this information, SASSA will initiate the payment process.

How long does pending take on SRD SASSA?
