The South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) called on all beneficiaries of the R350 grant to reapply at the end of April. Have you ever wondered about the procedure of Sassa R350 grant payments?

Here Is The Procedure For R350 Grant Payments

  • A person who meets the qualifying criteria for the new R350 SRD grant can apply. This application must be done on Sassa's SRD portal.
  • Sassa is responsible for either approving or rejecting the grant application before the end of the month for applications submitted before the 15th of the month.
  • Sassa’s decision must be delivered with an electronic receipt or notification of outcome for the application (If the grant application was approved or rejected)
  • If the grant application was rejected, Sassa must provide a reason for the rejection. You are allowed to appeal this rejection if you feel Sassa was incorrect in their decision. This appeal will be assessed by the Independent Tribunal.

Sassa must keep a register of all applications for the SRD grant. This register will include the identifying particulars, date of application, date when the application was approved or rejected and the payments made.

Sassa must also ensure that all the information above is stored and protected in terms of the Protection of Personal Information Act (POPI).
