FAQs for Sassa Reapplication for R350

When your application for the SRD grant shows “SASSA reapplication pending,” it means that the South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) hasn’t received your initial application or your request to apply again. This status suggests that SASSA hasn’t looked at your application yet. If you see this status, it’s recommended to apply again through different channels like the SASSA website, email, WhatsApp, USSD line, GovChat, or Facebook. This status means your application is still being checked and needs to be submitted or resubmitted for further review by SASSA.

If your COVID-19 SRD R350 Grant application is rejected or marked as failed, you have 90 days to appeal. You need to submit your appeal to the Department of Social Development Independent Tribunal for Social Assistance Appeals (ITSAA). Remember, if you appeal after 90 days, your application won’t be reconsidered.

The outcome of appeals for the SRD R350 grant varies based on each case. After appealing to the Department of Social Development Independent Tribunal for Social Assistance Appeals (ITSAA), the Tribunal reviews the appeal and makes a decision. Applicants are notified via SMS. Successful appeals may result in grant approval, while declined appeals can lead to further options like seeking legal recourse or free paralegal advice.

Some common reasons for SRD R350 grant appeal rejection include: not meeting the income means test, where applicants should earn under R624 per month; receiving other income, grants, UIF money, or NSFAS, which disqualifies applicants from receiving the grant; being identified as ‘IRP5 Registered,’ indicating that databases recognize the applicant as someone who pays tax and receives an income; and database errors picking up old UIF payments or incorrect information about receiving UIF money.


The SASSA reapplication process for the R350 SRD Grant involves individuals who have received a “Reapplication Pending” status needing to reapply to ensure their application is properly submitted. Applicants can reapply online through the SASSA website or via WhatsApp, following specific steps to provide accurate information and complete the application process. Reapplying is crucial for those whose initial applications were rejected, allowing them to correct any issues and potentially receive the grant. It is essential to meet all eligibility criteria, such as being a South African citizen, unemployed, and having no other source of income. The reapplication process is similar to the initial application, and applicants are advised to reapply within a specific timeframe to ensure their applications are considered for the SRD grant.
