SASSA has asked all those applicants who have been declined hut have, however, applied for reconsideration or appeal to exercise patience as they are reviewing their applications.
According to SASSA, they have to manually work hand in hand with the banks yo make sure that applicants do not regularly receive any cash or have any other source of income.
Because as part of the application qualification, applicants should not have any other source of income and thus why they’re liaising with the banks to recheck.
According to a report published by SASSA on their Facebook page on 30th September 2021, SASSA acknowledged that about two thirds of the reconsideration applications received so far have been worked on and the rest should be patient as they are currently working on that one too.
Additionally, it was indicated that a sum total of 14 million applications were received but 8.3 millions so far approved. But out of the number approved, 5.6 million applicants have so far been paid as at September 2021 representing about 67% payment rate.
Find below the actual section of the post SASSA discussed about the appeal or the reconsideration applications :
Over two thirds of appeals lodged have been finalised. As part of the process, SASSA sends these cases to the banking sector for validation which may take time in some cases. The main purpose is to double-check if they do not receive an income because part of the COVID-19 SRD criteria is that applicants should be unemployed and without any income. “SASSA requests applicants who have not yet received their appeals’ feedback to be patient as everything humanly possible is done to finalise the process”: concluded MemelaSASSA update on reconsideration or appeals
