Every month, around 10 million people qualify to receive the SASSA R350 grant. More than 10.9 million applications received for the SASSA R350 grant, five million were rejected and five million were approved. As previously reported, many R350 grant applicants were declined over a self “exclusionary response.”
Self Exclusionary Response Found means that information provided on the application form shows that the applicant is already receiving support of funds more than R350 per month, or stays in a government facility and therefore does not qualify for the SASSA R350 grant.
The SASSAA R350 grant is very important as it is the only support unemployed individuals between 18 and 59 years old receive from the South African government.
SASSA R350 Grant Application Decline Reasons
SASSA has shared with the public some of the reasons why the SASSA R350 grant applications are rejected.
All SRD applicants must meet all the qualifying criteria for the SASSA R350 grant. Unsuccessful applicants have the right to appeal their rejection status. SASSA said the appeals process will resume on Monday, 27 June 2022. Rejected clients can lodge an appeal via the website – https://srd.dsd.gov.za. The new system for appeals only applies to rejected R350 grant applications from April 2022 onwards. Old SASSA R350 grant appeals are being processed by SASSA.
