SASSA R350 Grant: What Each Application Status Means

By Klenam JU •  Updated: 04/17/24 •  5 min read

The SASSA R350 grant is a social grant in South Africa that helps low-income individuals and families with money. The grant is paid out once a month and is meant to help pay for things like food, clothes, and a place to live. To get the grant, a person must be a South African citizen and meet certain requirements for income and assets. The South African Social Security Agency gives out the grant, and the government pays for it. Many South Africans who were hurt by the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting economic downturn were saved by the R350 grant. It has helped make the country less poor and less unequal.

Each status in the SASSA R350 grant application is a crucial point in this process. The application status represents the feedback that SASSA is trying to communicate to the applicant. Now let us look at the application status and what they mean. 

SASSA R350 grant: What each application status means

Keep track of the status of your application and contact SASSA if you have any questions or concerns.

SASSA gives grants to people who qualify. One of these grants is for R350. If you have applied for the R350 grant, you may be wondering what each status means. Here’s a quick summary of each status:

“Pending” means that your application is still being looked at, and a decision has not yet been made.

Approved” means that your SASSA application has been accepted, and therefore, your grant will be paid when the time is due.

“Rejected” means that your grant request was turned down, and there will be no need for any grant payment.

“Suspended” means that your grant has been put on hold for the time being. This is usually because your situation has changed or there was a problem with your application.

“Canceled” means that your grant has been stopped for good, either because you no longer meet the requirements or haven’t sent in the right documents or evidence.

SASSA R350 grant: Check your status

Applicants for the R350 award have been bombarding the South African Social Security Agency with questions but have yet to receive confirmation of their applications.

If you want to know where your application for the SASSA R350 grant stands, you can find out by checking its status in one of many ways, with each giving a clear message to the applicant.

When you get this message, it signifies you have successfully reapplied for the SASSA R350 award and will now need to be validated every month. The applicant should next visit the SASSA website to view their verification and payment status.

SASSA would have received your application or reapplication, but your financial information would be missing. To apply for the R350 grant, visit the website and fill out the application.

If you haven’t yet submitted an application or reapplication, you will see “Reapplication Pending” as your application status. You’ll need to fill out an application to do this.

August Pending – The status of your August grant verification request is currently unknown. It is important to keep checking your status. 

Your request to receive the R350 SASSA grant in the month of August has been approved. You, as the applicant, need just verify the expected receipt of payments. Indicating no payment date confirms your grant payment has not been confirmed.

Your application has been declined, and the reason given is “August.” You will be informed of the main reason behind the decision and given the opportunity to resubmit an appeal at the right time.

Application Complete

If the status of your SASSA R350 grant application is “Complete,” it indicates that you have provided all of the necessary documentation and information for the application to be processed. The next thing that will happen is that SASSA will go at your application and come to a conclusion on it.

Reapplication Pending

To guarantee that your reapplication is done without any hiccups, it is essential to ensure that you adhere to the directions that are provided by SASSA and that you submit all relevant papers in a timely way.

If the status of your application for the SASSA R350 award is “Reapplication Pending,” this indicates that you have applied for the grant in the past and that your application is currently being reviewed for a second time.

Bank Details Pending

SASSA pays individuals through certain mediums of payment options but what is widely used is bank accounts. The flexibility in the SASSA payment options allows beneficiaries to choose what suits them most.

Bank details are the needed information for an applicant of SASSA. Once you have passed the approved stage and you see bank details pending on your application, it clearly confirms your bank details need verification. However, in other ways, SASSA will require you to confirm the details that have been provided finally.
