Have you checked your status today? What is your current SRD R350 Status when you checked : pending, approved or declined?
The above is the main status for almost all applicants of the SASSA SRD R350 grant.
This article focuses on the three main statuses and what they mean and what you can do if needed.
SASSA SRD R350 Grant Approved Status
If you are fortunate enough to be approved, what that means is that after SASSA completed the screening process you are approved because you qualify for the grant.
If you are approved with pay dates, then you are few days ahead to be paid. The pay dates are the dates in which your grant amount will be deposited into your bank account for those using bank as payment method.
rom previous experience, bam payments are made on the same date as the date shown on the status dashboard. If you have subscribed to your bank’s SMS alert, then be expecting a notification from your bank when the grant is finally credited to your account.
In some cases, you might be approved without pay dates and this could be due to some factors including challenges with bank account verification. Whenever you submit your bank account, sassa verifies and validates the account to make sure it matches with applicant’s submitted details.
That has so far bren the major factor why most applicants are approved without pay dates. In any case, please make also sure that the bank account number and other details are accurate.
SASSA SRD R350 Grant Pending Status
In case you check your status and you see “pending” on your dashboard, please what it means is that SASSA is yet to complete your application screening and you need to wait a bit longer.
The screening process is done in batches and you might in the series of batches being processed. Bit if you think almost all applicants are worked on but you are still pending then it might be a system error.
