SASSA has attested to the fact that, hundreds of thousands of applicants are trying to apply and or checking their statuses has resulted in the application platform becoming too slow.
Numerous people are complaining that they are not able to check their status and only a message that says failed.
But in a tweet sassa responded that they are aware of the challenges applicants are facing check status and will soon resolve the issue.
They have also given the assurance that payments for August 2021 SRD R350 Grant will start 23rd August 2021 although they are nit able yo tell individual payment dates for each applicant for the mean time.
In view of this, sassa will begin approving applications and payment at the same time as SASSA tries to avoid any unnecessary stress on applicants.
