Firstly, we advise that you appeal for your declined applications.

Secondly, SASSA R350 pending status simply means your applications are not processed yet.

Thirdly, according to SASSA, they’re working on processing payments for all R350 approved but pending grants.

Again, we do advise that, if you’re receiving money through your bank account, it shouldn’t be more than the required threshold of SASSA’s R350.

SASSA will decline your SRD application if they see funds flowing through your account. It’s just a requirement that applicants should not have other sources of income, thus, not more than the required threshold to qualify for the Covid-19 grant.

I’m so desperate for this SRD grant but I’ve been pending since June. And now it just keeps saying ‘failed’ when i try to apply. Also your SASSA offices keeps giving me the toll free number when i go ask for assistance but when i call that number they refer me back to the SASSA offices. Help please!

Firstly, the SRD R350 grant pending status means SASSA has not processed your application yet.

Secondly, SASSA sometimes makes mistakes in declining grants for the wrong reason. Nonetheless, once your SRD grant is declined, the only option is to appeal. So I recommend that you appeal as soon as possible.

Again, make sure you are not receiving money through your account and if you do, it shouldn’t be more that the SRD threshold of R350, else SASSA will consider you to be having other sources of income and declined your R350 grant.

@Kelebogile, this is quite unfortunate.

First, we’ve edited your ID to avoid publishing it in the public domain.

Second, with your issue, we advise that if you’re receiving money through your account on behalf of somebody else, you should kindly talk to the person to find other means to collect the money.

The reason is that, once SASSA detects that money is flowing through your account and it’s above the threshold of R350, they will consider you disqualified for the SRD grant on alternative sources of income grounds.

The money may not be your own but SASSA can’t verify that.
