SASSA SRD R350 Grant Applicants Shocked Over Mass Decline UIF registered and income sources identified

Have you checked your SRD R350 grants application status today? And what was the outcome of the status?

Are you declined, pending or approved?

Most applicants had a shock of their lives when they checked their status online and were told declined with many reasons including “uif registered” and “Alternative Income Source Identified”.

What baffles most of them is how sassa came up with these flimsy reasons to deny them the reinstated SRD R350 Grant.

Most of them claim they are unemployed and not receiving any grant for themselves and see no tangible reason why SASSA would do that.

They have taken to social media to express their disappointment in the verification procedure for the approval and payment of the.

Below are some of the concerns expressed by these aggrieved applicants :

Honestly I feel like these “declines” are on purpose, as the “application status” was inaccessible for a very long time till now after August passed. They have now opened the status (in September) and even if we appeal we have forfeited August R350 payment as per their rules

Declined 😭 what SASSA has done to us can never be didn’t ~ Facebook user

SASSA may have to reconsider their decision why they turned down so many applicants.

After many applicants applied for reconsideration so that SASSA will take a second look at their application, most of them have had their applications decision reversed.
