SASSA Reconsideration Status Check For R350 SRD Grant Application


SASSA reconsideration system is an automatic way for those applicants who have been declined for the SRD R350 to appeal.

In the previous SRD R350 grants application, declined applicants had to send appeal applications to an email address, but looking at the tedious work for checking thousands of emails individually.

SASSA then added a reconsideration module to its online registration platform where applicants can appeal without sending any email.


Some of the reasons where applicants can appeal using the website are : uif registered, alternative income source Identified, nsfas registered, debtor, receiving other grants etc.

Note must be taken that when the reason for the decline is ‘identity verification failed’ which literally means the submitted names of the applicant is incorrect one way or the other, you cannot use the reconsideration module to request an appeal.


There is a place on the website where those with identity issues can update their Surname and Full name online.
