For one to be entitle to the R350 grant, they must either be jobless without any kind of earnings, not earning any kind of government subsidy such as UIF, NSFAS, social grants or any other financial assistance and they must not be under age. Meaning over 18. The South African Social Services Agency (SASSA) has obtained many complaints with concerns to the rejected R350 allowance petitions. In an announcement published by SASSA, the organization noted that some petitions have been refused because they did not meet the standards. View pictures in App save up to 80% data.

SASSA CEO, Totsie Memela, clarified that the bulk of refused petitions were from individuals, who were already on the UIF network. “In this case, the applicants are advised to contact the Department of Employment and Labor to either apply for UIF or follow up with their applications,” - Totsie Memela. Totsie Memela further reported that SASSA verifies all petitions by corresponding to their data with other public and private databases to abolish the possibility of fraud so that only the deserving applicants obtained desperate financial assistance. 3,2 million applicants have been authorized and 1, 2 million applications have been expended. Expenditures are still in development as SASSA still needs to do a confirmation inspection before any donations of R350 can be made. SASSA further expressed that they strive to proceed working overwhelmingly to guarantee that those, who are entitled for the R350 grant get it.

Applicants are processed daily but the major source of delays come from the necessary verification process which SASSA has to do with other institutions which are dependencies in the value chain,”- “The department is aware that this has caused unhappiness from applicants and thus, it is important for beneficiaries to understand the criteria because this grant is not necessarily for everyone. We are doing everything in our power to solve the matter and a dedicated email address and phone number have been made available to process the complaints,” -Totsie Memela expanded. “Our aim is to support the government in alleviating poverty, especially during these difficult times but we have to follow the required process and we appeal for patience from those whose applications we have not reached so far,” -Totsie Memela. Totsie Memela brought up that beneficiaries are instructed to use their own personal bank accounts and not those of their neighbors and to also guarantee that their personal details are precisely as they arise on their identity documents. “Personal information is very important because during the verification check, should we find that the information provided during the application does not correspond with the identity document, that might lead to the application being rejected,” Memela concluded.- Totsie Memela.
