SASSA Status Pending for How Long?

SASSA Status Pending for How Long? July 2024

SASSA status can be pending for about two weeks after which a decision will be taken to consider either for approval or decline. Although SASSA has always indicated it does not have any time turnaround.

  • Many applicants are wondering how long their status pending will last?
  • SASSA has indicated that it should take not more than two weeks for status pending to change.
  • Sometimes, it can take less than a week or so to get approval.
  • Because of the numerous applications being worked on, it can also take more that the two weeks and even more.
  • To hasten the application process, applicants are reminded to submit accurate information about themselves or those that they are applying for. This will help reduce the undue delay that sometimes is associated with prolonged pending sassa status.
  • If you keep changing your payment method such as from Post Office(Post Office No longer paying grants) to your preferred bank account or vice versa or merchant account such as Shoprite or USave P and P shops etc, that will also delay the pending status, as SASSA will have to verify the bank account submitted first before approval or declined.
  • If you are pending for far too long, you can contact sassa on 0800601011 toll free number to find out why.
