  1. I’m wondering why the sassa people say if you make some money they they take the R370, how to improve the grunt and not loose their grunt

  2. I have applied for the srd grant and all my statuses are approved without dates and when I call sassa they told me that my bank account number was short with 1 number and told me to fix that on their website and told them I can’t because my phone was stolen so I didn’t do a sim swap I’m using a new number the lady I was talking to took my new number and told me that they’ll contact me anytime from that day and it’s almost 2 months without receiving any call from them 😔😔😔 I’m so disappointed because I really need that money as I’m struggling 😭
