It is a wish for every applicant of the SRD Grant that their R350 Grant application be accepted by Sassa. But unfortunately, that may not be the case. What happens if you get rejected but you feel that you deserve the grant? We outline the steps to follow in order to appeal for your rejected SRD application.
Where to submit SRD appeals?
If you have been rejected for the SRD R350 Grant, you may lodge an appeal. Previously, appeals or application for reconsiderations were used to be sent directly to Sassa via their SRD Grant website, but now things have changed.
To appeal the SRD declined application, you have to send your appeal to the Independent Appeals Tribunal.

Step 5: Get the Pin and enter it on the space provided
Step 6: Choose the month you want to appeal for. The system will also show you the reason why your application was declined.
Step 7: Select appropriate reason for your appeal application. You select from a drop-down menu on your screen.
Step 8: Press ‘submit’ and the process is complete. All you need to do now is to check the appeal application status on a later stage.
When to Appeal?
It is recommended that immediately when you see your rejection status, you must lodge an appeal, preferably within 30 days of your rejection status.
When does the appeal close?
The applicants are allowed to appeal within 90 days of application rejection. Otherwise, after the 90 days period, they will not be able to lodge an appeal.
How often do I appeal?
Sassa verifies applications on a monthly basis and your status may change monthly depending on the Sassa findings. Si, if you are rejected every month, that means you have to submit your appeal every month for each month that has been rejected
