Although it has been more than two years since it was first introduced by Sassa, the R350 grant still plays an important role in the government’s efforts to assist beneficiaries who are in need.
The Sassa R350 grant currently benefits more than 7.5 million South Africans who meet its eligibility requirements. However, in an effort to ensure that the grant specifically caters to qualifying beneficiaries, Sassa has also introduced regulatory changes in how it is administered.
Consequently, this has also affected its application process, as there have been beneficiaries who have their applications rejected. Fortunately, the agency also allows beneficiaries to appeal their declined applications using the steps listed below.
