When I check my R350 SRD status, it says “failed”

Many applicants are currently complaining why when they try to check their status of the SRD R350 Grant they are met with the message “Failed”.

According to these stranded applicants who are wandering if they are to be approved or not, they are in limbo who cannot see their fate.

Most of these applicants have taken to social media to express their dissatisfaction with the way things are going.

But it seems sassa is yet to to make any public announcement over the issue so that these people will have the heart to wait as the issues are resolved.

With barely two weeks to the end of the month, which SASSA promised first batch of payments will start, there is no indication for approvals yet, not to talk about the payment dates.

But we are very keen, sassa is working in the background to verify all these millions of applications for subsequent verdict.

It has to be noted that, those experiencing this problem are not only people that used the Moya app but in general.

Moreover, there is so much more pressure on SASSA SRD R350 grant application system because of the numerous requests on the servers by applicants across the country.

We are trying our best to bring thus issue to the attention of sassa, and promised to get our readers updated as soon as possible.

        Reason:I’m registered for Nsfas

        How does that happen?cause at first I was receiving R350,with that reason of Nsfas…but now they declined me…

        I don’t understand because I’m not schooling,not working,actually I don’t receive any income…even that Nsfas I applied for it before covid-19…but still i don’t get approved….

        1. Let me tell you what you need to do. Your name and ID numbers are still in the Database of nsfas. If possible, Friday or Monday, go to nsfas office and let them delete your name from their system. Thus the suggestion from department of social Development. #SASSACARES

          I also got a similar problem, I applied last year and I got declined saying that I’m Irp5 registered but I’m no longer working,what can I do to avoid the same results this year.

          1. Basically, you should have appealed the decision. But you go ahead and apply and let us see. The irp5 is a tax certificate which should be submitted by your employer to show that you were paying tax (if that persist this time contact SARS)
