Sassa Requests Status Updates From SRD Grant Beneficiaries

Please share this article


Are you a Sassa SRD grant recipient who recently entered into a marriage? Or have there been any changes in your current marriage status? Sassa requires that you inform them of any changes to your personal details.


The South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) has urged R350 SRD grant recipients who choose to get married or change their surname at the Department of Home Affairs to inform Sassa of the change. 

This is because Sassa validates the SRD grant recipient's details with the Department of Home Affairs on a monthly basis. So if the grant recipient’s personal details do not match those on Sassa’s database, their application for that period might be declined.

Here is how SRD grant applicants can update their details on the Sassa website.

How to update your R350 SRD grant personal details 

  • Visit the SRD website
  • Scroll down to “Request Names and Surname Update”.
  • Enter your ID number, name and surname exactly as it appears in your SA ID document or card.

An applicant’s name and surname will then be updated if they match the details that are on the Department of Home Affairs database.

If the application is still denied after the update, applicants may request for reconsideration within 30 days of receiving the declined reason.
