What 'Active' R350 Grant Application Status Means

Have you been checking your SASSA R350 grant application status and kept wondering what the active status means?

I know it can get frustrating not getting that approval confirmation that you can now collect your SRD grant this month.

But worry not because the 'active' status just means SASSA has received your R350 social relief grant and busy processing.

This is the first status you'll see when applying or re-applying for the R350 SRD grant. You'll then have to be more patient as they process your application and confirmation will be communicated to you upon completion.

The follow-up status you'll get is pending, which means SASSA is still busy with your application and it hasn't yet been approved.

They always encourage applicants to regularly check for the R350 grant application statuses on the SRD website.

Finally as indicated above, once your application is approved, you'll receive a confirmation from SASSA that your R350 special grant will be paid, and also request banking details.

They have now confirmed the payment dates for May 2022, check when your date is due to collect the R350 grant.
