Millions of unemployed people living in South Africa rely on the R350 grant to access basic goods and services every month. Individuals can check if they will be receiving the grant in November by following a step by step guide on how to track your grant application. 

The South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) revealed that millions of people continue to apply for the Social Relief of Distress (SRD) grant. The grant, commonly referred to as the R350 grant, provides some financial assistance to unemployed people living in South Africa. 

It is estimated that 12 million people have submitted a Sassa online application in the hope of receiving the R350 grant every month. While they are not required to reapply for the R350 grant monthly, Sassa will continue to evaluate R350 grant applications to ensure that everyone who applied for the grant still meets the R350 grant eligibility criteria

R350 Grant Eligibility Criteria 

The R350 grant is available to unemployed people living in South Africa. This includes South African citizens, asylum seekers, special permit holders and refugees. 

These individuals must be between the ages of 18 and 59 years old to qualify for the grant. Individuals who are older than 59 years old may apply for the Older Persons Grant while those younger than 18 years older may be eligible for the Child Support grant distributed by Sassa. 

Prospective R350 grant beneficiaries may not be receiving any form of government support. This includes other grants distributed by Sassabenefits from the Unemployment Insurance Fund (UIF) or funding from the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS).

They also may not be accommodated in a government institution. 

One of the most important eligibility criteria introduced by Sassa for the R350 grant is the income threshold. Beneficiaries of the grant may not have an income higher than R624. 

Income, in this context of the SRD grant, refers to the amount of money an applicant has in their bank account. If an applicant has more than R624 in their bank account, their application for the R350 grant will be rejected.

Individuals who meet the R350 grant eligibility criteria should qualify for the grant payments. They can check if they will be paid by completing a Sassa status check. 

Sassa Status Check For R350 Grant Status

Individuals who want to track their R350 grant application for November 2023 can visit the Sassa R350 grant website to complete a Sassa status check. 

Steps To Check Your R350 Grant Status For November 

Step 1: Visit the Sassa SRD grant website

Step 2: Scroll down to the ‘South African ID Holders’ and click the ‘click here to proceed’ tab

Then, scroll down to ‘Application status’ for your SRD grant 

Step 4: Click on ‘Click here to check online’

Step 5: Fill in your ID number and the phone number that you used for your application, then click ‘submit’

Step 6: You should then be able to see the SRD status of your R350 grant application

What Your R350 Grant Status Means 

The best R350 grant status to receive is “approved” which means that Sassa has approved your R350 grant application and you will receive the R350 grant. The only thing you now have to do is wait for an SMS informing you that your money has been paid and is available for collection. 

If your grant application is “approved” but you have no payment dates, you are required to upload your banking details. 

A “pending” SRD grant status means that Sassa is still evaluating your grant application.

Some R350 grant statuses require grant applicants to complete tasks to receive their grant. This includes “bank details pending” which requires applicants to provide their banking details which will allow Sassa to complete a means test

If your application for the R350 grant declines, you may receive an “IRP5 Registered” R350 grant status. This means that Sassa is picking you up as someone who pays tax which means you’re receiving an income. 

A “referred” R350 grant status when your application was randomly selected for internal verification and quality assurance. It may also indicate that the cell phone number used for the R350 grant application was flagged by the South African Fraud Prevention Services (SAFPS)

These grant applicants must contact the SAFPS to resolve the issue. Once this is done, you must email Sassa with proof you have cleared the issue. Beneficiaries will then undergo the facial recognition process

What To Do If Your R350 Grant Application Was Rejected 

If you believe that Sassa was incorrect to reject your grant application, you may submit a R350 grant appeal to the Independent Tribunal for Social Assistance Appeals (ITSAA). 

Here’s How To Submit A R350 Grant Appeal For November 2023 

Step 1: Visit The ITSAA Website

Step 2: Enter Your Identification Number

Step 3: Enter The Cell Phone Number You Used During The Application Process

Step 4: Click Send “Pin”

Step 5: Once you receive the pin, you will be required to insert it and click “Submit”

Step 6: Select the month that you are appealing for

Step 7: Secret the drop-down arrow to choose the reason for your appeal application from the options provided

Step 8: Click “Submit” to complete the appeal application process

The ITSAA Processes R350 Grant Appeals within 60 to 90 Days. Grant applicants who are unsatisfied with the ITSAA’s decision may approach the High Court for judicial review within 180 Days.
