So you submitted your R350 grant application and when you tracked your application, you found that you were declined. You then saw that it was because of 'age outside range', well here's what that means.

If you SRD status was 'age outside range', it means that you don't qualify for the grant because you are not meeting the age requirement which is between 18 and 59 years old. You were either younger than 18 or older than 59.

Should you be over the age of 59, you can then apply for SASSA's Older Persons' Grant which sees you get R1890 per month. Click here for more information on SASSA's Older Persons' Grant.
