Can caregivers apply?

As SASSA only processes one application from each applicant, you only have to apply once. In this way, caregivers who do not receive any grants on their behalf can apply.

A government institution employs the applicant.
In addition, if you are older than 60, your SRD grant may be denied.
As a beneficiary, you may be listed on the Department of Home Affairs database as deceased.

What to do if the SASSA grant application is declined?

In the event that your application is rejected, you will have the right to appeal the SASSA decision by filing a complaint with the Department of Social Development for each month that your application was rejected.


Applicants who cancelled their Sassa SRD grants and wish to restart them can reapply as long as they do so properly. Either cancelling or not applying for the grant will make you eligible. We would be glad to answer any questions you may have regarding the grant application process.
