Declined for SASSA R370 June Payment? This Is How To Appeal

Frustrated about your SASSA SRD application being rejected for the June payment?

Don’t give up just yet!

You have the right to fight back. This guide is here to empower you.

We’ll break down the entire appeal process into simple steps, so you can understand it clearly.

Before We Begin: Understanding Appeals

An appeal is basically asking a higher authority to review SASSA’s decision on your application.

You’ll need to convince them that the rejection was incorrect and why you deserve the grant.

Important Things to Remember:

  • Time is of the Essence: Act fast! You only have 30 days (ideally) from the rejection notice to lodge your appeal. Don’t wait until the last minute – 90 days is the absolute deadline.
  • Separate Appeals for Different Months: If you’ve been rejected for multiple months, you’ll need to submit a separate appeal for each month.
  • Keep Contact Details Updated: Make sure SASSA can reach you. Double-check your phone number and any email addresses you provided during the application.

Step-by-Step Appeal Process for Sassa R370 For July

Let’s get started and ensure you get a fair chance at receiving the SASSA SRD R370 June payment.

1. Head to the SASSA SRD Website

Open your internet browser and visit the official SASSA website at https://www.sassa.gov.za/.

2. Find the Appeals Section

Look for a section titled “Important to Note” or something similar. There might be a button that says “Click Here” next to it.

This button will take you to the appeals page.

3. Are You Still Eligible?

The appeals page might have information about eligibility again.

Read through it carefully to confirm you still qualify for the grant. If you’re unsure, it’s best to contact SASSA directly for clarification.

4. Start Your Appeal

If you’re good to go, locate a button like “Click Here to Lodge an Appeal or Check Appeal Status“.

Click on this button to begin the appeal process.

5. Enter Your Details

A new page will appear. Here, you’ll need to enter your 13-digit South African ID number and the cellphone number you used when you submitted your SASSA SRD application.

Once you’ve entered this information, click the button that says “Send PIN“.

6. Verify Your Identity

You’ll receive a one-time PIN (Personal Identification Number) on your cellphone.

This PIN is like a secret code to confirm it’s really you making the appeal.

Enter the PIN on the website and click “Submit“.

7. Select the Month

The system will likely show you a list of months where your application was declined.

Since you’re appealing the June payment, choose “June 2024” from this list.

You might also see the reason for rejection displayed here.

8. Explain Your Case

Here’s your chance to tell them why you think the decision was wrong!

Be clear and concise in your explanation.

Briefly state why you believe you qualify for the grant and why your application should be reconsidered.

Here are some pointers for writing a strong explanation:

* Briefly state the reason for rejection mentioned by SASSA (if available).
* Explain why you think that reason is incorrect. 
* Provide any evidence that supports your claim. This could be bank statements proving financial hardship, a letter from your employer confirming unemployment, etc. 
* Keep your tone respectful and professional.
  • Supporting Documents are Key: If you have any documents that support your claim, like bank statements showing financial hardship or proof of unemployment, you can upload them during this step.

9. Review and Submit

Once you’ve written your explanation and attached any supporting documents, take a moment to review everything carefully.

Make sure there are no typos or errors. When you’re confident, click the “submit” button to officially lodge your appeal.

10. Wait for a Response

SASSA will review your appeal.

An independent body called the Independent Tribunal for Social Assistance Appeals (ITSAA) will make the final decision.

You’ll be notified electronically (via email or SMS) about the outcome of your appeal within 60 to 90 days from the day you submit it.

  4. I did not receive my SRD grant for June 2024. I have visited the SASSA office in order to find out about the reason for declining my payment and they told me about the means of income source identification . But that was not a true statement. They asked for my 3 months bank statements and I did forward them for viewing. The only thing was a goal save which I made from the very same payment which I receive from SASSA grant which in turn I used it for buying an engagement ring . Other than that there’s no income which I’m getting because I totally don’t have a job . I really need the money because it helps me a lot.
    Furthermore, the office only told me that I will not receive my payment which was declined for June 2024, and so I’m dissatisfied because I haven’t done anything wrong .

    I also asked to change my old number 0767328142 due to loss to my new number 0673908884, but till now my new number has not yet been activated for my SASSA account. Please help me .
