New R350 Grant Appeals Deadline

In todays latest SASSA News – As the South African Social African Social Security Agency (Sassa) continues with its monthly payments of the R350 grant, a new appeals process has also been introduced. Here is how long applicants have to make use of it.

Regarding the ongoing payment of the R350 grant by the South African Social Security Agency (Sassa), a new appeals process administered by an Independent Tribunal has been adopted to fast-track application appeals.

However, what is equally important for R350 grant beneficiaries and applicants to understand is that Sassa has allocated a closing deadline for when they can submit their application appeal. This cohort of grant beneficiaries has been advised to submit their R350 grant application appeal for the April and May period by no later than Thursday 7 July 2022.

Additionally, Sassa R350 grant applicants have been urged to update and correct any incorrectly submitted personal information or update their responses to Sassa’s screening questions on the SRD website.

Applicants who are still unfamiliar with the newly introduced R350 grant process can submit their application appeals by following the steps listed below:
