SASSA Update: September and October (Pending vs. Alternative income identified)

With so much saga that’s been going on and so many payments to be processed – SASSA continues to decline some applicants who have an alternative income source that’s been identified.  Some claim they have no other source of income and have accepted and let go – but people can still appeal the matter.

It is apparent that SASSA is still processing May, June, and July payments for those who have not received a single cent.  According to our source, no payments have been made for the month of August and September, and that all payments for Aug, Sep, and October will be paid in a bulk for those approved and who have not received.

OCTOBER – the end of SRD Payments is near, as the nears – it is unfortunate that some people have not receieved any payments, and some have only received single payments – where in other cases, some have been getting declined for other months.

SASSA uses different machanism to identify all sources of income for each and single according, if you feel have been declined by mistake you can appeal on covid19srdappeals@sassa.gov.za.

Accounts are pending, and September has not been processed – as we are headed toward the end of SRD grants for COVID-19 and the impact it has done to the global enonomy.

Are you one of the people who have declined due to the ‘alternative income source identified’ – people don’t hesitate to let us know if this was done in error in comments below.
