Struggling financially in South Africa? You may be eligible for the Social Relief of Distress (SRD) grant from the South African Social Security Agency (Sassa), also known as the R370 grant. This monthly grant provides much-needed support for unemployed South Africans.

Here's a breakdown of the R370 grant to help you see if you qualify and how to apply.

Who can apply for the R370 grant?

  • Unemployed South African citizens between the ages of 18 and 59.
  • Not receiving other government financial aid like NSFAS bursaries, UIF payments, or other Sassa grants.

How to check your R370 grant application status

  1. Visit the official Sassa SRD website
  2. Use the online status check tool to see if your application was approved, rejected, or pending.

What if my R370 Sassa grant application was rejected?

If you believe you meet the eligibility criteria but were rejected, you have the right to appeal the decision. Appeals are handled by the Independent Tribunal for Social Assistance Appeals (ITSAA).

How to appeal a rejected R370 grant application

  1. Visit the Sassa SRD ITSAA website
  2. Enter your South African ID number and the phone number used during application.
  3. Verify your identity with the one-time PIN sent via SMS.
  4. Select the month your application was rejected (e.g., May 2023).
  5. Choose the reason for your appeal from the provided options.
  6. Submit your appeal. (Note: Submit separate appeals for each rejected month)

ITSAA aims to finalize appeals within 60-90 days.

Still Rejected?

While the ITSAA decision is final, you can request a judicial review within 180 days of receiving their decision.
