How to Check Your R370 Sassa Grant Appeal Status for May 2024

Sassa has processed millions of applications for the SRD grant in May 2024. For those who were rejected and filed an appeal, checking the appeal status is crucial.

The South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) disclosed that nearly nine million individuals applied for the Social Relief of Distress (SRD) grant. While many have been approved, not all applicants have received payment.

Grant Payment Dates for May 2024 

SRD Grant Increase

In March 2024, Finance Minister Enoch Godongwana announced an increase in the SRD grant payment from R350 to R370. This adjustment, confirmed by Social Development Minister Lindiwe Zulu, became effective on 1 April 2024.

Applicants unsuccessful in securing the SRD grant are encouraged to appeal if they believe Sassa’s decision was erroneous. Appeals are submitted to the Independent Tribunal for Social Assistance Appeals (ITSAA).

The ITSAA assesses appeals within 90 days in compliance with the Promotion of Administration Justice Act (PAJA). Applicants can check their appeal status to determine if Sassa’s decision was upheld or reversed.

Social Development Minister Lindiwe Zulu confirmed the insertion of Section 6C into the Social Assistance Act to ensure continued payment to eligible SRD grant recipients until May 2024.

This legislation permits Sassa to utilize March 2024 assessment data for April 2024 SRD grant payments, mitigating payment delays during the transition.
