Government is doing everything it can to try and reduce poverty during this difficult times as Corona pandemic as taken over the world. Since corona outbreak, the lives of many people haven't been the same especially those who are coming from disadvantaged families. Many people have lost their source of income as a result of retrenchment.
The R350 that people are getting every month is too little to can accommodate people's needs. Food prices have gone higher and everything is now costing alot of money because of the unstable economy we have. The rand against dollar continue to weaken and there is also too much corruption inside our rulling party.
People who requested that their rejected Covid-19 R350 social relief distress grant applications be reconsidered can expect a delay in the process, according to the SA Social Security Agency (Sassa).
On Wednesday, the agency said R350 grant reconsideration application were delayed. The agency did not offer any explanation for the delay, but said it was working to resolve the issue.“Clients who applied for reconsideration are advised of the delay in addressing the reconsideration requests. Sassa is currently working to resolve this,” it is said
Sassa announced the reconsideration option earlier this month after many social media users flooded its pages to complain that their application was cancelled without an explanation.Sassa said applicants who were declined for any period and with zero income the next month can submit an application for reconsideration.
Those who struggle with submitting the application should call 0800 601 011 for help.“If a client’s application is declined, the client has the right to request reconsideration within 30 days of receiving the declined reason. “Clients must request reconsideration for each month the application is declined,” said Sassa.
Sassa said nonpayment reasons differ from applicant to applicant.“Some have provided wrong bank details/contact numbers if they chose the cash send option. Others keep updating their bank details, which delays their payments. You may send us a direct message with your ID number to track your approved payments,” said Sassa.
Those people who got rejected by sassa should just follow the instructions so that they can be able to receive their money. You must be patient when waiting for the feed back because sassa is receiving a high volume of applications everyday so it will be difficult for the system to respond you with immediate effect.
