If you applied for R350 SRD grant you need to hear this as SASSA tells applicants to update this


The South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) has disclosed that the majority of applicants for the R350 Social Relief of Distress grant provided false answers to the screening questions. Additionally, SASSA has explained to the candidates what they can do to correct the mistakes.

Some people were denied for alternate sources of income and some had self-exclusionary responses discovered as a result of the inaccuracies.

Some applicants responded yes to the question on the application asking if they get any amount larger than R350 from anyone else.

Which indicates that you are telling SASSA that you do not need their assistance; nevertheless, if you said "no," it signifies that you do. So that you can correct your comments, SASSA has made their page available.

You must first update your information on the Sassa page, where it says to "Reconfirm your grant application." You can now click on this link to go to the SASSA page:
