What is my SASSA Status is Pending?
Unfortunately, for a lot of people, when they check sassa status online it is only showing as “pending” and they are unable to receive the R350. The official SASSA recently released the below message on 1st June 2022:
Payments for the new cycle of the special COVID-19 SRD grant (from April 2022) will be paid as from mid-June 2022.
SASSA will continue clearing outstanding payments from the previous cycle as and when the bank details are confirmed. The payments will not be done together, but will be done month by month. More than one payment may be made in a month, but no one will receive double payments in amount. SASSA will do these multiple payments in a month until the backlog is finalized, where after monthly payments will resume.
