To them they are wondering what ordering criteria is sassa using to process applications. They don’t seem to grasp the reason why people that they applied before them are approved with some even paid.


When one’s application is on pending, the applicant can feel nervous because any outcome is possible : either approved or declined.

According to SASSA, applications submitted goes through a series of processes aiming at making sure that the the applicant deserves to be given the needed financial support.

If your application has been on pending for more than 2 weeks, then there is a need to follow up with sassa to find out what is the reasons behind the delay.

Remember, the verification process is done electronically and not manually therefore it could be some system error or oversight.

In most cases, they will respond to your request and address them but the most effective channel is the Twitter. Keep trying 👏👏👏
