As people look to collect their grants, some grant applicants have had their grants suspended. This has left many without crucial support.

Here is what the ‘Suspended’ SRD grant payment means:

According to SASSA, this means that the person is registered as deceased on the Department of Home Affairs database. This status means that you will not receive your SRD grant.

Here’s what to do if your SRD grant status is ‘Suspended’

  1. Contact the Department of Home Affairs to correct living status.
  2. The client can submit a request for reconsideration via the website, should they feel that the reason is invalid, only after having corrected the details with Home Affairs. If you haven't contacted Home Affairs, your living status will reflect that you are deceased.

More than 10 million people are currently benefiting from the SRD grant. The South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) says they are working tirelessly to reconsider all grant applications. Around 4 million people’s SRD grant applications have been rejected by SASSA.
