Are you applying for an SRD grant from Sassa? Several SRD grant applications received a status of ‘Identity Verification Failed’. Here’s why.
SRD grant applications are verified by the Department of Home Affairs before they are approved by the South African Social Security Agency (Sassa).
The application will receive a status of ‘Identity Verification Failed’ if Sassa finds that the applicant’s details do not match the Department of Home Affairs’ records.
When considering applicants’ applications, several databases are used to process their information. To begin with, the Department of Home Affairs checks the applicant’s name, surname, and ID number.
Applicants who believe their applications were unfairly rejected may appeal their decision if they believe their application was unfairly denied. Thereafter, Sassa will have to reconsider its application for the SRD R350 grant.
You must file an appeal within 30 days of receiving a rejection status on the Sassa website.
