Why SASSA SRD R350 Grant Status says “Failed”

Some even believe that those who used the Moya app are facing this challenge, but further checks indicate that is far from the truth.

Almost all applicants who used the SASSA website and Moya app are facing the same problem.


But one thing is clear SASSA Status Check is not activated on the website which might be the case why most people are not able to check their status.

Indeed all these applicants received a confirmation SMS from SASSA which is a clear indication that applications are active and successfully submitted.

That should give these aggrieved applicants not to worry about the current situation, we are very keen that SASSA is working around the clock to activate the status module.


Look at the image below telling the said applicant that their bank account details is successfully submitted and that application is active.

Applicants must exercise patience and not to be stressed out and feel aggrieved.

Although SASSA promised to start processing first batch of payments in the last week of August 2021.

We are sure by now, more than 9 to 11 million of applicants as more and more people are expected to apply.


What has kept most people not being able to apply has to do with the absence of the USSD code as most people do not own or have access to smartphones and or internet access.

One thing that applicants have to bear in mind is the fact that the module that allows applicants to change or switch payments option is yet to be activated.

So for now, no applicant will be able to change or resubmit bank account after successfully submitting the application.

Let’s all get together and be patient as we wait for SASSA’s platform will be in a full swing.
