SASSA has circulated a post stipulating the conditions that warrant an appeal as it relates to the SRD Grant, which came to an end last Friday.
The South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) took to Twitter on Tuesday, 4 May 2021, to reiterate that the Social Relief of Distress (SRD) Grant came to an end on Friday, 30 April 2021. The R350 grant was introduced at the beginning of the lockdown, in an attempt to compensate those who may have lost their jobs due to the strict lockdown restrictions and regulations.
SASSA has clarified that because the initiative concluded last Friday, no new applications will be accepted. However, some earlier applicants may still qualify to receive funds.
According to SASSA, earlier applicants that were approved but never received their payments can now have the matter looked into. Moreover, applicants that believe that their applications were unduly denied can still appeal and possibly have the initial verdict reversed.
See the post below.
