Good News to all SASSA SRD beneficiaries

Like all children social grant caregivers, clients without the 13-digit barcoded South African identification numbers, are eligible to apply for the Special COVID-19 Social Relief of Distress Grant. When applying, they will use a SASSA system-generated number starting with 7777 as their identification number. 

To this end, SASSA calls on Quad-7 identity number holders receiving children's grants and are also caregivers, to apply for the special SRD R350 grant using their system number starting with 7777 number allocated by the Agency when they were first approved for a social grant.     

Those caregivers who do not have their SASSA system-generated identification starting with 7777, are advised to call the SASSA Toll-free number on 0800 60 10 11 to request the said number. Once they have their number, they will be able to apply for the R350 grant, using the SASSA website on

We SASSA been approved for 5 weeks no paydate yet u adding adas while those applied are being decline for msoonu reason you failing to give us paydate now sept pending how long must we wait trying to call and you have to wait half hour before being pickup u ask questions they failed to answer.

How are you going to approve someone with no ID? ,when I applied for social relief 2020 and got declined with an ID document.

What is the use to inform most of us we applied and declined due registered with Uif and we didn't even work.

Guyz I just saw a post on SABC news about the strike that was on at Pretoria Sassa offices about this 350 grant. Ppl are complaining about why their application were declined and that was exactly what.

I was emphasizing ukuthi we need to come up with another way for this department to hear our cry because we've been complaining about them being incompetent on their post but nothing has been done so let's stand up and fight. We are unemployed.

some have never worked but are declined so where is this money going. Complaining here and asking questions won't help coz the admin don't even answer. It's time for action now.
