When the Social Relief of Distress (SRD) was extended by 12 months earlier this year, it meant that around 10 million people would continue to receive crucial financial support.

Despite the extension of the SRD grant, The South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) has announced several changes have been made in the way that applicants apply for the grant and how applicants appeal rejection statuses

The SRD grant was originally introduced during the Covid-19 pandemic and was provided under the Disaster Management Act. When President Cyril Ramaphosa ended the State of Disaster in April, the grant then had to be provided under the Social Assistance Act. 

One change that coincided with the change of legislation is that SRD grant applicants have to reconfirm their grant application after a period of time. This reconfirmation of applications will need to be completed by grant applicants every three months. 

Sassa explained that this reconfirmation informs the agency that you are still in need of the grant and still qualify for the grant under the new requirements.

“Existing applicants can also update their responses to the screening questionnaire here, at any time, should their circumstances change or to correct errors,” explained the agency.
