The final month for the COVID-19 SRD grants for the unemployed is currently pending and awaiting approval for those who qualify.
With a second wave of the new COVID-19 variant now nicknamed COVID VSOP, but actually named 501.V2 one can only hope the grand will be extended further. In South Africa, the unemployed affected by COVID-19 have been receiving R350 on a monthly basis since the beginning of May.
The first case of coronavirus was confirmed on 5 March 2020, and the virus is here to stay for a very long time.
The South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) will be offering the last R350 grant in the month of January.
Rejected applicants will only be able to appeal until the 28th of February which is the cut-off date for appeals.
“Meanwhile, the SASSA has reminded citizens that the R350 grants will only be paid until the end of January 2021.”
The recipients can send their grievances through https//srd.sassa.gov.za or by sending an email to the firstname.lastname@example.org on or before 28 February 2021.
The applicants are requested to provide reasons why they think the SASSA decision was incorrect or provide motivation when lodging their complaints.
All appeals will be considered and appellants will be provided with feedbackGov
