Sassa status check SRD Grant Reconfirmation

If you received a ‘Pending’ notification on your Sassa Grant Application, don’t panic. Here is what ‘Pending’ means:

If your application status is ‘Pending’, this means that your application has not been approved yet. The agency is still in the process of scanning your details so they can be verified.

SASSA recommends that you keep an eye on your social relief of distress grant status for any updates. Once Sassa has verified all of your details, they will validate your name and ID number with Home Affairs.

Clients whose applications for the Covid-19 SRD Grant were declined can now access the SASSA Covid-19 SRD portal and apply to SASSA for a reconsideration of its decision. This channel seeks to supplement the email channel which has been in use all along

Sassa went on to explain what the ‘pending status’ means, it said;

Pending means your application has not yet been approved, your details still need to be screened and verified first. Once approved, you will receive an SMS from SASSA requesting your banking details, then you will be paid.

When you apply for the Sassa Provisional Grant, your details are scanned against various databases such as Unemployment Insurance Fund (UIF), South African Revenue Services (SARS), and National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) to ensure that you are not receiving any other grants or sources of income.

After the applicant’s ID number and phone number has been scanned through a Fraud Risk Scoring process, they will receive their payment through the Post Office, bank or Cash Send.

Whereas the South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) continues to process payments of the current cycle of the R350 grants, many applicants still have a ‘Pending’ application status.

According to Sassa, these applicants are experiencing this delay because the agency has been trying to keep up with the influx of current applications.

Sassa has highlighted that beneficiaries are not being paid in May, but this is due to the governance issues at the agency. Sassa plans to make payments to its beneficiaries in August, however, beneficiaries need to be aware that they will not receive double or lump sum payments as Sassa is assessing every month individually. This means that any information provided when applying may need to be verified further.
