South Africans who are unemployed and over the age of 18 but under the age of 59 have been getting an R350-a-month Covid-19 grant for the past two years. In April, when the Covid-19 rules changed, the grant also started a new cycle.
When the new grant cycle started in April 2022, it came with new rules and regulations. Many people can't get the grant because of these new rules. The grant started giving out money last week, on June 22, 2022. Most people are upset that they were turned down.
People are turned down for many different reasons, such as having another source of income, not being able to prove their identity, or having another source of income.
Here are some reasons why your application was turned down:
The grant was first made available in May 2020 to help with the Covid-19 pandemic. People say it will be there until March 2023.
There have been a lot of people who feel like they shouldn't have been turned down for the R350 grant. They think they deserve to get it.
Sassa has made a public statement for people who want to appeal their statuses and think they were turned down unfairly.
It says, "Those who were turned down for the June 2022 COVID-19 SRD Grant Payment and want to appeal, please do so through the DSD Independent Tribunal Website."
Some people have already been paid for the month of June, but thousands of people who were getting the grant have been turned down.
