So, you completed and submitted your application to get the R350 grant but then unfortunately, you were rejected. 

Well, the main requirement for the grant is that you receive no other income, grants, UIF money or NSFAS. If you receive any of these, you would not have been accepted then.

Then, you might have been rejected and told that you are 'IRP5 Registered'. This means that databases are picking you up as someone who pays tax which means you're receiving an income. 

If the reason you were rejected says that you're receiving UIF and you're not, this could be that the database is picking up old UIF payments or such.

It was however seen that these reasons were inaccurate and that applicants were not working or receiving UIF money. In this case, you should then submit a R350 Sassa grant appeal.

A R350 grant appeal is basically a second chance. You are asking SASSA to reconsider your application.

Appeals will close on 31 May 2021.

How To Send Your Appeal

  1. Go to Sassa Appeals Website
  2. Enter ID number
  3. Enter telephone number
  4. Lodge appeal

If you've already lodged an appeal, you will then not need to send another or contact the SASSA office.

It's important to note that you can only appeal if you applied for the grant during the February to April period.
