As the rollout of the SASSA R350 SRD grant continues, there are still a lot of people who have reapplied and still awaiting feedback on their application status.  

If you are one of those that have applied and are still not sure about the status of your application, worry not, in today’s article, we will be showing you how to check your SASSA R350 SRD status.

Before we get started, note that the South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) is working tirelessly to clear the backlog.

How to Check SASSA R350 SRD Status

You can check the status of your SASSA SRD grant online by following these steps

  • Visit the SRD website
  • Enter your ID and cellphone number
  • Confirm OTP sent to the registered cellphone number
  • Get your application status online

SASSA has made it possible for applicants to also track their application status through WhatsApp. You may track by following these steps:

  • Add their WhatsApp line (082 046 8553) as a contact
  • Open chat and send a text ‘status’
  • You will have to enter your ID number and the cellphone number used when applying
  • The status of your application will be sent to you

What Each Status Means

Reapplication pending – This means that your application has been received but your details could not be submitted due to a system error. To resolve this, you will have to resubmit your application and wait for confirmation.

Application complete – You have successfully completed the reapplication process. Your details will then be verified and if everything is in order, you will be notified via SMS on when you can expect your grant payment.

Banking details pending – You might have entered incorrect details and you need to update them.

Month pending (e.g., May pending) – Each month your details will be verified, so you will have to check your status each month. SASSA will be checking if you are not receiving any UIF, NSFAS, not working, or receiving any financial assistance from the government.

For those who have been approved, you will see a message or text stating that you have successfully completed the process and are ready to receive payment. You will see the months you are approved for payment e.g., May or June approved.

Approved does not necessarily mean that your grant money is ready. Your payment date will be allocated, and you will be notified when it is ready for collection.

Declined – Your application can be declined due to various reasons which will be clearly stated in your status update. You will have to read and understand why your application was declined and if applicable, you may submit an appeal for reconsideration via the website.

For those that have been successfully approved, SASSA post office payments started this week, you can check out when you will be receiving your May payment dates.
