This is an update to our previous post asking applicants of the SASSA SRD R350 grant to stop checking their grants online.
In the post we asked desperate applicants to rather contact SASSA on 0800601011 to find out their current status for August 2021 SRD payments.
Although the line has been very busy, those who have been able to go through can confidently say their status.
When you are able to go through the line, the SASSA agent will ask for your ID number so that they can easily check your status.
Users should note that, the cell phone number (0800601011) is a toll free number so users are not charged for calling.
These are some of the comments from those who were able to talk to the agents :
"Approved with pay dates thus 27th August 2021."
"Approved with pay dates : 28th August 2021"
"Approved without pay dates, bank account yet to be verified (Bank is Capitec)"
"Status is pending"
From the above comments from these applicants who are obviously happy, it is clear that SASSA is actually working in the background and as they have promised to reactivate the status check module online so that individual applicants can check their own status.
It has to be noted that payments are currently ongoing and we have some applicants confirming their SMS alert from their bank accounts since Wednesday 25th August 2021.
SASSA is eager to help reduce agitation build up by this initial challenges experienced by grant recipients or applicants.
You can share your experience and feedback with us in the comments section so that others too can learn from it.
It is our hope that by next week Monday SASSA will reactivate the application check module to reduce the tension mounted especially online
They should also help our mothers and uncles who have no idea about online platform by using the local FM radios to educate them in their respective local languages about the happenings of the reinstated SRD R350 Grant.
