How To Check Your Sassa SRD Grant Payment Status

Millions are expected to benefit from the Social Relief of Distress (SRD) grant each and every month. However, there are many people who would want it if the South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) approved their SRD grant application. 

If you want to check if your SRD grant payment status, you need to conduct a Sassa status check. There are two ways to do this.

By completing a Sassa status check a beneficiary will be able to see if their grant application was approved or not, but also what steps they are required to take to ensure they receive a R370 grant payment.

This Sassa status update provides information on your Sassa grant application status, collection options for approved grants, and the appeals process for declined applications.

What Your Sassa Status Means 

A pending SRD grant status means that Sassa is still evaluating the applicants grant application. ‘Approved’ indicates that the grant application has been approved and they will revive SMS notification when their grant is ready for collection at Pick n Pay, Shoprite, Checkers, or Boxer stores.

Alternatively, you can choose to have it deposited directly into your bank account (if you have one).

Declined means that the applicant has failed to meet the eligibility criteria for the grant. 

If the declined SRD grant applicant believes Sassa was incorrect to reject their SRD grant application they can submit an appeal. Appeals are handled by the Independent Tribunal for Social Assistance Appeals (ITSAA).
