Universityonlineapplication November 29, 2022 - 8:58 pm

After you have submitted your banking details to SASSA, they will first verify and approve your details before they make payment into it.

Again, SASSA advises that R350 beneficiaries should not change their payment method frequently. So, you should not try to switch to other payment methods but wait to till your bank account details are approved.

Also, since your situation has taken longer, I advice that you go to the nearest SASSA Office to make enquiries.

It could be that SASSA has not processed your payment yet. First, make sure you have selected a payment method. If it’s a bank, make sure you have provided your bank account to SASSA.

How To Change My Sassa R350 Payment Method To Pick N Pay

Universityonlineapplication August 27, 2022 - 10:29 am

It seems the options that pop up when changing payment method current are bank and post office. This issue is quite technical. We advise that you choose the bank option. SASSA has stopped paying SRD R350 through Post Office.

However, if you choose the Post Office payment, you can collect your R350 at all merchant stores like Boxer, Checkers, uSave, and supermarkets.

Universityonlineapplication July 26, 2022 - 9:44 pm

First, SASSA says they’re processing all pending payments and will pay before July ends.

Seconde, once your SRD grant is declined, the only option left is to appeal. We strongly advise that you submit your appeal for April as soon as possible.

First, yes, there are lots of R350 grants still pending and SASSA says they’re processing them. So, there’s nothing to worry about your pending applications.

Second, if your June is declined, the only option is to appeal so we do advise that you submit an appeal for reconsideration as soon as possible.

Why is my sassa grant still pending?

Universityonlineapplication June 14, 2022 - 4:03 pm

First, your SASSA grant is pending because SASSA has not processed your application yet.

Second, there’s nothing to worry about if you provided the accurate information and all documents required. SASSA says all pending applications will be processed by the end of June.

Clarence June 19, 2022 - 12:52 pm

What must I do to get my 350 on shops

Universityonlineapplication June 19, 2022 - 7:43 pm

Just go to the merchant shop, it could be Boxer, Checkers, USave, etc. You’ll need your ID and payment date. An assistant will help you to generate a pin for you at the shop and you can withdraw your R350.

Maria Brigid Rustoff May 16, 2022 - 1:47 pm

What if i applied with my new simcard number because i lost my phone i reaplied with my new number 0660582478

Universityonlineapplication May 16, 2022 - 8:16 pm

To change your contact, you’ll need to call SASSA so that they do it directly from their database. Then SASSA will update your contact details.

However, if you’re able to do the reapplication with the new SIM number and you have not received any notification from SASSA concerning your contact details, then you should wait for SASSA to process your reapplication.
