Since the president announced the reinstatement of the SASSA SRD R350 grant, millions more applications tendered in their their applications, this time around where caregivers were added.
Most applicants were optimistic that the defects of the glare challenges that marred the previous SRD R350 Grant Application would have been dealt with, but the situation did not improve at all.
As we file this report, thousands of applicants are still not paid since August although approved.
What is your current SRD R350 Status?
Approved Without Pay Dates and With Pay Dates
For this category of people that their srd grant status check is showing Approved Without Pay Dates and With Pay Dates , some of which are using the post office, personal bank account and e-wallet as means of payment.
They wonder why they have been approved but no pay dates and whenever they even get that slim opportunity to contact SASSA on 0800601011 toll free number, they are only told to be patient.
Common sense tells any reasonable person that, it is not right and does not make sense to put people through that stress meanwhile the purpose of the grant was to relief them of distress.
SASSA as a social welfare agency should bear in mind that, most of the applicants are already struggling with unemployment as the rate of unemployment is all-time high because of the global pandemic.
It is high time SASSA up their game and be more resourceful to help these disgruntled applicants.
Others too have been approved with pay dates alright but no pay payment.
According to SASSA, when your srd sassa gov za sc19/status is pending it simply indicates that your application is being looked into as they request better particulars from various government agencies databases to see if indeed the applicant qualify or not.
This is quite understandable but for how long must one wait? Some have bren pending for months without any proper outcome. SASSA must be able to figure out those affected applicants who fall within this category and urgently work on them as urgent as possible. These applicants livelihood depends on these grants for survival.

Canceled Application and Reinstatement
Are you one of those applicants whose application has been canceled either by system error or possibly a mistake?
According to others, some people out hate and jealousy knowing their ID number and the phone number used to apply can cancel their applications.
We have also received more complaints where people wished to reinstate their canceled application, but as i write this article, the ability to reinstate canceled application is not yet activated and SASSA is just quiet about this.
It looks as though all hope is lost as months go by and without them being allowed to reinstate. Meanwhile, they will not be allowed to reapply as whenever they try to reapply, they are told their ID numbers are already in the system’s database.
If you take a closer look at the image above, it is clear that the ability to cancel is active (in yellow label) but the reinstate but is deactivated (in grey label or button)
Nobody can tell if SASSA will allow a grace period when they finally activate the reinstatement of canceled grant application.
But to our cherished visitors, we will keep updating this post as and when SASSA makes any new changes to this module.
