Latest SASSA update: From ‘Declined’ to ‘Pending’

The R350 Social Relief Fund

SASSA in a report mentioned that it will be reviewing all the declined applications. This morning, many declined applicants are hopeful as their SRD Application status went from ‘Declined’ to ‘Pending’. The question is:

‘What does this mean?’ 

This means SASSA kept their promise in relooking at all the rejected applications. This doesn’t necessarily mean all declined applicants will be approved. For the mere fact that SASSA is relooking at declined applicants and reverting your status to ‘Pending’, means you could be approved or still get declined but with more clarity and a reason for declining.

You are advised to keep checking your status on https://srd.sassa.gov.za/sc19/status or use the platform that works for you, can be via Moya App or Whatsapp – However, iBusiness prefers the online platform.

Once you get approved, you will be able to send the banking details, however – iBusiness hopes there won’t be any further issues about reviewing applications, as a few may still complain, but SASSA would’ve given you a reason beyond any all kinds of evidence why you are re-declined.

Please be in mind that millions of applications have been declined and relooked at during the coming days and thus your patience is required.

SASSA is aware and will probably refer you to the Post Office, keep on the lookout for SASSA’s SMS

My status says that iam approved for may and June I don’t know what to do

Isaac More 20 July 2020 at 7:06 pm

You will get paid for both approved months. You are most likely to be sent to the POST OFFICE, however, if you’ve successfully submitted your banking details, you can only wait… in any case, you have to wait.

Each month, your account will be reviewed to check if you still qualify for the grant, however, if you haven’t received your May payment, it’s on its way swinging to your bank account and/or to your chosen method of payment.
