If your R350 grant application has been rejected, there's a way for you to get a second chance.
SASSA has an appeals process in place to review all rejected applications. Applicants can make use of this process in the event that their application is rejected.
"Any applicant whose grant is not approved has the right to request that the decision not to award the grant be reconsidered through an appeals process." SASSA said.
Appeals can be made on the SASSA website by following these steps:
Visit the SASSA website at https://srd.sassa.gov.za/
Scroll and check the "Application for reconsideration" heading
Select "click here to apply online or check reconsideration status"
Follow the prompts
Appeals must be submitted within 30 days of receiving the application outcome. SASSA warned beneficiaries that it will not automatically review rejected applications.
This means rejected applicants will have to submit appeals on their own in order for their application to be reconsidered.
"Applicants are reminded to lodge an appeal for every declined application." SASSA added.
How will grant payments be made?
Successful applicants can expect to receive their grant payments in the following ways:
Bank account - the money will be paid into the bank account of the client.
South African Post Office/Post Bank (this is for beneficiaries without bank accounts)
Bank Money Transfers (cash send/e-voucher) - for beneficiaries who do not have bank accounts
