For each month that your application was turned down, you must file an appeal with the Department of Social Development. Be careful to file an appeal at DSD appeals if your application has been rejected for any time starting in April 2024.

You will receive information on how to file an appeal as well as news that your application has been rejected. If you don’t submit an appeal for each month that your application was turned down, the initial judgment will stand (i.e. your application continues to be declined).

How can my grant application be updated?

Since April 2024, all active SRD R350 grant applications and reapplications have been taken into consideration for each month up until March 2024.

Are there any further details I should give SASSA?
For their application to be taken into consideration, applicants must confirm or provide the following information to SASSA through their representative:

Proof that you have read, understood, and agreed to the terms in the Declaration and Consent documents
Your specifications

If you need to resubmit an application that you previously canceled, you can do so.

My SRD Grant will be paid when and how?
The SRD Grant is paid after the candidate’s application has been processed, unlike other grants which are given on set dates each month.
