Why Is Your SASSA Application Still Pending?

When your South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) application for a grant is still pending, there could be many factors resulting in your SASSA pending status.

That is why we have a full article that answers and explains the question as to why. We do recommend that you read Why Is My SASSA Status Still Pending for a detailed explanation.

How Long Should SASSA Pending Status Take?

There’s no definite time period given by the South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) as to how long should your SRD pending status take.

According to SASSA, you may get a message that it is because SASSA is working on hundreds of thousands of SASSA grants applications and that may be a reason for the delay of your pending status.

Will SASSA Approve My SRD Pending Status?

Yes of course. Your SASSA status pending does not means you do not qualify for the SRD grant or the South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) will not approve your R350 grant.

However, you’ll be approved for SASSA grant only if you meet the requirements of the grant and if you provide the necessary information needed from you by SASSA.

That is why you should read Who Qualifies For SRD Grant for the in-depth information on what makes you qualify for the SASSA SRD grant.

What To Do If My SRD Pending Status Is Declined?

If your SRD application is declined from pending status to application declined, you have to go through the reasons why your SASSA SRD application was declined.

After knowing the reason, you have to make the necessary changes and submit a reconsideration for your application.

To do that, you’ll need to read How To Apply For SASSA SRD Reconsideration for the guide to do it successfully.

Moreover, you can also appeal to SASSA for application review.

Read the guide on How Do I Appeal To SASSA for grant approval so that your appeal to your unsuccessful SASSA grant application will be successful and get approved.

Universityonlineapplication September 12, 2022 - 9:23 am

Firstly, we have edited your cellphone number to avoid getting it to the public. Secondly, once your SASSA SRD R350 grant is declined, the only option is to appeal for reconsideration.

We, therefore, advice that you appeal the months you were declined.

First, there are lots of applicants’ grants still pending. However, SASSA says they are processing all pending applications and will complete them in July.

Second, yes, some approved SRD grants are not paid and again, SASSA says they are working to pay all pending grants in July. So, let’s wait and hope they do pay as they’ve said in July.

Your application has been approved, but payment date has not been created… thats what it says.. Many people have been paid 3 times already and I haven’t even received the first payment… Your system is bull and there is no Fairness..

Universityonlineapplication August 2, 2022 - 11:53 am

Yes, lots of approved SRD are yet to receive payment dates. In the meantime, we strongly advise that you should make sure you have provided your bank account details for verification and approval if you haven’t yet.

There’s nothing to worry about if you provided all the required information to SASSA when reapplying. SASSA says all pending applications will be processed by the end of June.

I’ve applied in last year and only showed pending for 2 month’s after that, it showed declined and reason why, I’m UIF registered which I’m not coz I’ve never had a job before

Universityonlineapplication June 9, 2022 - 8:40 am

You’ll have to reapply for the SRD consideration. SASSA will do its checks again and will know you’re not UIF registered from the Department of Labour system. They will then approve you for the R350 grant if you meet the other requirements.

After you have reapplied, SASSA will take your application through the verification process. Once SASSA finishes verifying your information and document, you’ll get a response on whether you’re approved or declined for the R350 grant.

However, you can keep tracking your application by checking your status See How To Check R350 Grant Application Status for the guide.

Pending means, that SASSA has not finished processing your application yet. However, it seems your application is taken longer than expected. In such a case, we advise that you contact SASSA directly for inquiry via any of these SASSA Contact Details
