Keep Your Bank Account Empty for SASSA SRD R350 GrantKeep Your Bank Account Empty for SASSA SRD R350 Grant

One of the main reasons why some SRD R350 grant applicants are declined is the fact that, their bank account balance is more than R350 per month or have been receiving deposits more than R350 per month or currently new threshold of R624 a month beginning 2023.

It may sound bizarre but thus the reality and it is an official criteria used by SASSA to determine if an applicant should be considered or denied for the SASSA SRD R350 Grant every month.


On this note, it is more advisable to keep your bank account balance at zero or something minimal.

Whenever an applicant submits his bank account, sassa has the consent of the applicant to have access to the account balance or transactions for a certain period of time.


This, according to SASSA is to help ascertain if the applicant is in anyway receiving some form of sustenance or income.

It may sound ridiculous, because even if someone receives some money is for what purpose, but SASSA does not consider the intent of the cash flow.

It is assumed that as far as the funds are in the account, then it is at all cost for the applicant.

Some of these applicants have expressed their disappointment over why SASSA will use such flimsy excuses to deny them their basic income grant or SRD R350.


Because of this development, we wish to advise fellow applicants if the SRD R350 Grant to make sure that their bank account is empty and that no transaction should br made which will be more than R350 per month.

When one is declined for the SRD R350 grant, he or she does not have any specific opportunity to know exactly happened, but are only left with an appeal.

This appeal process or the reconsideration can take up to 90 days or three months for the final outcome and by that time, what would the individual who has been unemployed be used to cater for themselves.

Although South Africa is among the richest countries in Africa, there is huge economic inequality gap between the rich and the poor in the 2023 and 2024 fiscal or financial year.
