In recent times there has been an announcement by the South African Social security agency regarding the management of its grant application. These are changes that seek to make SASSA inspiring and have a positive influence on society.

The mission of SASSA distributing the R350 grant is to reduce poverty in the long term and strengthen the lives of the vulnerable. This fund, in a diversified way, supports the standard of living of many households.

If you are looking forward to applying for the SASSA grant, do so to earn some money for yourself. For those who have applied and have yet to receive any notification, you can check your status for more information. Should your application be unsuccessful, kindly note you can submit an appeal.

How Do I Appeal For SASSA R350 Grant?

All applicants who have been declined can appeal for the SASSA R350 grant. The appeal process is just like resubmission of your application but pointing out your correction and making a point of reconsideration. All SASSA requires is for individuals to provide accurate information and ensure this information is true.

All rejected reasons can be appealed; as an applicant, it is your right to look into your application and submit an appeal. Now let’s get into the steps to appeal for the SASSA R350 grant

How long does Sassa SRD appeal take?

There are over 100,000 appeals every week, which is another reason the appeal process takes time. And the increase in the number of appeals is due to the new system created by SASSA. This process has made it simple for applicants who are rejected to submit an appeal quickly.

The appeal options only show up to applicants who have been rejected. The timeframe for SASSA to work on the appeal is an internal process. However, based on the new projections, system, and service, the appeal time may take between 2 – 3 months.

This on average, is not more than 90 days. SASSA is always working hard to verify and confirm all appealed applications. Kindly take note the time period the appeal process goes through is between 60 to 90 days. 

When can I appeal R350 grant?

You may have applied for SASSA grant, but you got rejected and looking forward to sending another appeal; this information will let you understand the timeline to submit an appeal. 

The application process for SASSA is done by the officers for authentication and validation. Once you get the rejection of your application, you have the right to submit an appeal. One may ask, when is the right time to submit an appeal? 

According to SASSA, your appeal should be submitted within 30 days of confirming your rejected application. Once you confirm your application has been rejected, you can submit an appeal the following day. Being quick about your appeal does not guarantee approval, but checking your reason for the rejection can save you a ton of time. Always submit your appeal within 30 days of seeing the rejection but remember, after 90 days, your appeal will not be confirmed. 

How Will I Know My SASSA R350 Appeal Is Approved?

Tracking your SASSA R350 appeal can let you know the status of your appeal. This can be done at the office and on the website.

What To Do If SASSA R350 Appeal Is Rejected?

This is a moment that can be very frustrating for applicants. Getting your first application rejected and no second rejection can be trouble. But here is the good news, the new site of SASSA indicates that every appeal done is for a particular month.

All appeals can be done in relation to the 12 months available, meaning you can always appeal as many times as you want. But remember appealing many times can get your account flagged. This sends a signal to the systems about a forced entry.

The best thing to do is to review the information submitted during the application process, confirm the documents provided and re-evaluate the details once again. This will be a guide to ensure all corrections be made. If your SASSA R350 appeal is rejected, do the needful and submit an appeal once again.
