The President declared a National State of Disaster as a result of the Covid-19 global pandemic. Because of this, he implemented a special Covid-19 Social Relief of Distress Grant (SRD) which sees R350 being paid per month to people who are currently unemployed, do not receive any form of income, social grant, NSFAS or UIF payment. 

The Sassa R350 grant was meant to assist poor individuals cover their needs during the pandemic. 

There has been many cases where people applied for the SRD grant and were rejected but, Sassa allows these people to submit a Sassa R350 grant appeal. 

The question is however, what happens after you appeal? 

Sassa says that an applicant who has successfully appealed will be reconsidered with Sassa evaluating the applicant's reason for appealing and their financial status through various databases such as the Department of Home Affairs, SARS, UIF and NSFAS.

Those who submit a Sassa R350 grant appeal will be notified of the outcome of their application through SMS.  Appeals that are successful will be paid for their applicable months. 

The applicant will receive an SMS notification from Sassa directing the applicant on what to do next. 

Until you receive the SMS, here is how to do an SRD grant appeal status check:

  1. Go to Sassa Appeals Website
  2. Enter ID number
  3. Enter telephone number 
  4. Track Appeal

You can also call the SASSA Call Centre at 0800 601 011.

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