Interpreting Your SASSA Status

  • A pending SRD grant status indicates that SASSA is still evaluating the application.
  • “Approved” means the grant application has been accepted, and the applicant will receive an SMS notification when the grant is ready for collection at designated stores or for direct deposit into their bank account.
  • “Declined” signifies that the applicant did not meet the eligibility criteria. If the response is “bank details pending,” the applicant needs to update their bank details on the official SASSA website.
  • If an SRD grant application is declined, the applicant can submit an appeal to the Independent Tribunal for Social Assistance Appeals (ITSAA).
