We have received numerous reports from various sources of applicants especially those who use bank account as payment options that some R350 have started hitting their accounts.
Upon further checks, it became clear that as SASSA has earlier promised that they were working tirelessly on the reconsideration or the appeal so that payments can be made.
Some applicants have started sharing screenshots showing the payments received.
This come as a sigh of relief for these applicants who have waited for several months after submitting their appeal applications.
SASSA started the payment dates from August 2021 and is likely to continue till March 2022, thus the end of that SRD R350 grant payments cycle.
So far the only way to check your appeal or reconsideration status is yo contact sassa on 0800601011 toll free, although SASSA has promised to restore the reconsideration module on the website.
In a couple of days, SASSA took off the reconsideration module from the website srd.sassa.gov.za, and applicants did not know how to check their status online anymore unless they voice call SASSA.
Whenever you place a call to the SASSA call centre on 0800 60 10 11, just be patient until some staff picks the call, don’t just hang up, because after all you don’t pay for it, it is a toll free number.
For those not using the banks, you will have to use the Merchant as Post Office no more available for collection of the SRD grant.
To collect your grant from the Merchant like USave or Shoprite etc, you take along your cell phone number that was used to submit the application and your ID for verification purposes.
