How to Appeal UIF Registered Decline Status for SRD R350 Grant Application

A good number of SRD R350 grants applicants have been declined by SASSA for being UIF registered.

Whatever that means nobody knows. For the records, when SASSA checks the applicant’s ID number against some government agencies databases such as SARS, UIF, NSFAS etc

In case you are registered with Unemployment insurance fund, which some applicants claim they have no idea of.

Now these applicants are wondering how their names got into the UIF register in the first place and to some they have never worked before. So hoe come an unemployed person’s name found in people who are employed or have ever been employed.

SASSA should be in the best position to answer these questions but the unfortunately it is too difficult to get in touch with SASSA.

Their hotline 0800601011 is always congested and no one’s call is going through to have issues resolved.

Earlier they announced the reopening of the update of banking details, but till now it is not working and those who tried received failed error message.
