Please share this article


Ever wondered what happens to your R350 grant application after you finish and send it off to SASSA? Now you can find out.


The second round of the Covid-19 Special Relief of Distress grant saw applications for it open on 6 August and will end in March 2022.

Now, what happens after you submit your R350 grant application?

First, SASSA takes the information you provided to them, such as your ID number, Name and Surname, and validates it by the Department of Home Affairs.

Then, your ID number is matched against various databases such as he South African Revenue Sevices (SARS), Unemployment Insurance Fund (UIF) and National Student Finacial Aid Scheme (NSFAS). This is being done to ensure that you have no other grants or incomes coming to you.

Should they find that you do, you will not be approved. If you're clear, SASSA then moves on to the next step in their verification processes.

Your ID number and mobile number is then put through a Fraud Risk Scoring process. This is done to see if you pose a risk to SASSA and what needs to be done.

Once these steps are completed, SASSA will decide if your SRD grant application is successful or unsuccessful. You will then be notified through SMS if you've been approved.

You can also do an SRD grant status check to track your R350 grant application. Click here to find out how to do a SASSA status check.

Once you've been approved, you will then receive your R350 grant payment through the payment method you chose when applying. There is no set SRD grant payment date.
