Most Sassa’s R350 grant applicants are registered for PAYE with SARS

Currently, SASSA has been sending out reasons for declining applications. (Not sure about those who have already been rejected without the reason why). Rejected applicants seem to be registered for PAYE with SARS.

PAYE stands for (Pay As You Earn) which is the amounts deducted that should be paid to SARS by the employer on a monthly basis. Employers complete an EMP201 (Monthly declaration form) declaring the total payment together with the allocations for PAYE, SDL, UIF, and/or (ETI), if applicable.

This means you have a unique PRN (Payment Reference Number) used as a reference. If you are registered for PAYE, SARS will assume you are still working, hence it’s very important to keep your information updated with SARS and the Department of Labour.

To have this matter resolved, it is best to visit the SARS branch or Call the SARS Contact Centre on 0800 00 SARS (7277).

Ask of the documents needed – some of which may be the following: 

  • A bank certified original bank statement or an original letter from the applicant’s bank on an official bank letterhead
  • Certified Copy of ID or passport
  • Original or certified copy of:
    • Municipal or fixed-line account issued to the applicant to confirm the applicants’ physical address
    • An affidavit issued by the commissioner of oaths
    • Utility account
    • Mobile phone account statement
    • Lease agreement.
  • SARS will provide you with a list of all the documents needed.
