The South African Social Security Agency, SASSA, has urged all those applicants who been declined for their Social Relief of Distress (SRD) grants to appeal.
However, if they fail to appeal that decision SASSA will not find funds to pay them.
It has been a very big challenge for some applicants to receive a hearing from officials os SASSA concerning their appeal progress.
Some of these applicants of the SRD of R350 grants have been declined for various reasons ranging from irp5 (employees tax certificate), Unemployment Insurance Fund (UIF) to SARS registered among others.
Some of these affected people do not seem to know where to turn to for assistance. Some people even claim that they have been unemployed for years and do not see the reason why their applications were rejected.
Meanwhile SASSA has asked all those applicants who have strong feelings that they were unduly declined to send their evidence in writing to the given email address.
Below is the SASSA statement found on their official Twitter Page :
SOCIAL RELIEF GRANT
The R350 SRD grant will continue to be paid for a further 3 months.
Anyone who’s declined,must lodge an appeal at the firstname.lastname@example.org site.
“Anyone who doesn’t lodge an appeal will NOT be reconsidered as we don’t have funds to reconsider every declined case.” #sassacares
