Some applicants for the SRD grant might be declined and the reason given is sometimes, 'Referred SAFPS', but what does this mean? Can you do anything about it? We have all the answers so keep reading.

A 'Referred SAFPS' SRD grant status means you are a risk to SASSA and you were therefore declined.

'SAFPS' refers to the 'Southern African Fraud Prevention Service' and this step would then mean that when your application underwent a Fraud Risk Scoring process, they found that you are registered as a perpetrator of fraud with SAFPS.

One of the things SASSA does after they receive your R350 grant application is that they put your ID number and phone number through a Fraud Risk Scoring process.

What you should do about your declined R350 grant

Should you be declined and find that the reason given does not ring true for you, you are encouraged to submit a R350 grant appeal.

The appeal means that SASSA will have to consider your application again. However, it's important to remember that applicants only have 30 days after their SRD grant is rejected to submit a R350 grant appeal.

How To Appeal For SRD Grant

  1. Go to the SRD Grant website
  2. Scroll down to 'Application for reconsideration'
  3. Click on the yellow bar
  4. Fill in the required fields

Once you've submitted your SRD appeal, you will then need to track it. Click here to find out how.

The outcome of your appeal will be relayed to you through SMS.

Welding is one of the many kinds of trades that can provide a decent living and secure job. There are many jobs available for welders, but it's important to note what kind of welding you want to do before choosing your trade. It's also important to understand that besides knowing how to weld, you must know how to properly use tools and read blueprints, so that you can be as safe as possible while on the job.

When you hear the word "welder," perhaps your mind conjures images of a burly man or woman covered in a suit, hunched over an electric arc welder, furiously fusing two pieces of metal together.  Welding is a process that can be used in many different industries.
