Why You Must Appeal SASSA R350 Grant Rejection Every Month?

The Social Relief of Distress (SRD) serves as a crucial support mechanism for millions of jobless South Africans every month. It is therefore difficult when your SRD grant application is rejected and you have to wait for an appeal decision. Sassa distributes the Social Relief of Distress (SRD) to more than 5 million people monthly. If your SRD grant application is rejected, you can appeal the decision to the South African Social Security Agency.

The Sassa Grant application system is broken. It turns out that thousands of people are being denied grants unfairly every month and Sassa has no idea what to do about it.

Sassa will evaluate the information provided by applicants when applying for the SRD grant. If Sassa determines that an applicant is undeserving of the grant, they will provide a reason why an application was rejected.

This SRD grant status can be used by grant applicants to rectify any mistakes or appeal their rejection status. While people are only required to apply for the grant once, you will need to submit a SRD grant appeal for every month your grant application was rejected.

These appeals must be submitted to the Independent Tribunal for Social Assistance Appeals (ITSAA). The body works independently from Sassa and can take up to three months to evaluate appeal applications.

The ITSAA explained that if clients fail to submit an appeal, the agency will sustain Sassa’s original decision to reject the grant application. This is because if no appeal request is made, it would indicate that the client has accepted the decision made by Sassa to reject their grant application.

“Failure to lodge an appeal for each month that the Covid-19 SRD application was rejected by SASSA will result in the original decision being sustained,”

said the ITSSA.

The ITSSA is a competent authority, which means that its decision is final and cannot be appealed internally. However, dissatisfied applicants may approach the High Court for judicial review within 180 days of the ITSSA’s decision.
