There are many reasons as to why your Social Relief of Distress (SRD) grant application might have been rejected but one of the popular reasons is due to the Unemployment Insurance Fund (UIF).

The South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) has advised SRD grant applicants to lodge an appeal if their application has been declined due to UIF registration. Thus, if you are among those who have been affected by this, here is a step by step guide on how you to submit a R350 grant appeal.

Go to the SASSA SRD website and provide the following information:

  • Identity Number or Department of Home Affairs Refugee permit number
  • Name and Surname as captured in the Identity Document
  • Gender and Disability
  • Contact details such as your cell phone number
  • Residential Address

You will also be required to sign a declaration and consent form confirming the validity of the information you have provided, as it will be shared with other organisations and financial institutions such as SARS and banks. A detailed declaration and consent document is available on the SASSA website.

Once the appeal is lodged, SASSA will verify your employment status with the UIF and then notify you regarding the outcome.

Additionally, you will also be required to confirm your existing application once via the Sassa website or the WhatsApp number: 082 046 8553.

SASSA has also encouraged applicants to contact them on their Toll-Free number 0800 60 10 11 and not to visit their labour centres for assistance on this matter.

The study of psychology, which has its roots in philosophy and physiology, is an ever-changing field that explores the inner workings of the human mind. 

The field of psychology is a broad one that incorporates the study of cognitive, emotional, and social processes, as well as behaviour. From the testing of new drugs to the study of childhood development, it's no wonder that one of the most sought-after careers for psychology majors is research.

Psychology is a popular career and it's easy to see why. These professionals study how people think, how they feel, and how they interact with one another and their surroundings. They write articles and books, conduct research, consult with clients, or work directly with patients in hospitals and mental health clinics.
