Has your application for a grant been declined? That can be stressful. The good thing is you don’t have to give up, in fact, you can start a Sassa Appeal process right away. However, the South African Social Security Agency announced that they would no longer handle the appeal for r350 requests.
The Independent Tribunal for Social Assistance Appeals is now handling the appeals process. Therefore, if you are planning to submit the R350 Grant appeal to Sassa, it’s essential to familiarize yourself with the new process.
What Has Changed?
The changes made that have been put in place directly impact how you deal with a declined application for the SRD grant. If your application is unsuccessful, you should now submit an SRD consideration request through the newly established grant appeals website. This website also lets you check the appeal status.

If your grant application is unsuccessful, you should submit an appeal application for every month Sassa did not approve if you believe you qualify for the R350 SRD grant. Once the application has been submitted, all that’s left will be to wait for the tribunal’s decision. Please keep in mind that the decision of the tribunal is final.
As such, there’s nothing further you can do if your appeal is unsuccessful. However, you can approach the High Court for a judicial review within six months if you are not satisfied with the decision made by the Independent Tribunal.
