    ?

    This means that any change to the financial circumstances of the applicant may result
    in the grant not being approved for subsequent months, or approved for some months
    but not all
  10. Why it is important to re-apply? People’s circumstances may have changed over time;
    In order to confirm clients’ personal details, assess their income and financial status;
    Applicants need to accept the declaration and consent, which has been strengthened
    to comply with the Protection of Personal Information Act (POPIA) which came to
    effect on 21 July 2021;
    In order to access or to have the application reconsidered for the Social Relief of

    residency, income or social security benefits with any other institution deemed
    necessary by SASSA.
  11. When should I provide my banking
    details?

    upfront, so that we can process payment as soon as they meet the criteria
  12. What are the payment methods? o Personal bank account
    -SAPO
    -Cash Send
  13. What will happen if client fails bank
    verification?

    -A SMS notification will be sent to the client to correct bank details. If a client does not
    respond to the sms a SAPO account will be opened for the client for payment purposes
  14. Can Caregivers apply? Care givers who are not receiving any grant on their own behalf will also be eligible to apply
    – All care givers (all the child grants – CSG, CDG and FCG) can apply. They have to apply
    through the same channels, as with any other applicant.
    -Care givers who also receive an adult grant (Old Age or Disability) will not qualify for
    this grant, as the state already supports them financially
    -Care givers who receive grants under the system generated numbers can apply using
    the “7777” number – the system will accept these numbers and we will then validate
    against Socpen to ensure that they are current care givers
    – If approved –that is if the only income they have is the child grant, then the R350 will
    be paid directly into the account in which they receive their child grant
  15. Can I use somebody else’s phone
    number or bank account?

    o Applicants to note that the bank account or the cellular phone number provided for
    payment MUST be registered in the name
  16. How will I know if my payment is ready
    for collection?

    o The application and payment status can be viewed on the SRD website .It is very
    important for every applicant to provide the correct mobile number through which
    he/she can be contacted, as all communication with applicants will be through SMS
    notifications
  17. I cancelled my application because I
    received a temporary job but now it is
    finished. Can I re-apply?

    -Clients who previously cancelled the grant, and who would like to re-activate the
    grant, due to a change in their circumstances are welcome to re-apply.
  18. What do I do if my application is
    declined?

    – The declined application will only be reconsidered upon a request from the client
    -An application has to be lodged on the website within 30 days of the outcome being
    available.
    -It is therefore really important that applicants check their status, which is updated on
    the website as soon as a decision is made.
    – An appeal must be lodged for every month that the grant is declined.
  19. I have not received my payments for the
    approved months before April 2021,
    what do I do?

    – Grants which have been approved remain uncollected from the Post Office, all
    applicants who have not received or claimed their grants to urgently contact SASSA, as
    they will only have until 31 August 2021 to make enquiries in respect of the previous
    grant from May 2020 to April 2021.
    – Any applicant whose application was approved but not paid because the applicant
    could not be traced or the applicant did not contact SASSA to update his or her
    personal details, shall forfeit the money to the State after 31 August 2021
  20. If we say all payments not collected by the 31 August 2021 will be forfeited:
    All unclaimed payments at SAPO will be forfeited if not collected
    1.1 Does it mean that all outstanding payments will be made by 31 August
    2021? Payments including:

    client with bank details
