SASSA Reconsideration

By | August 2, 2023

SASSA Reconsideration | See Details On SASSA Reconsideration Below:

Do you want to know how the SASSA Reconsideration Application Work? This article will help you understand what you need to do so that your SRD grant is approved and let you know about the conditions of applying for reconsideration.

If your SRD or Sassa grant application was declined then you have to apply for reconsideration within 30 days. This must be done by submitting a new application form with additional documents. You have to pay a higher processing fee of R500 if you want to reapply using the same form and supporting documentation. There is also, a new SRD application form that is available on all Government websites as well as on smartphone apps.


The Sassa board has announced that they will reconsider the rejected applications before they subject the same to appeal. Those who have been rejected can appeal against this decision using the process as stated in the circulars. The reason behind most of these rejections remains undisclosed, but it is important for individuals and business owners who had their cases knocked off because there were problems with eligibility in some cases or with overdue.


So far, more than two and a half million applicants have been paid the grant from COVID-19. This means that the UIF verification process has gone on smoothly without any major problems. In addition to this, the government has also released more information available on the agency’s website.

“Processing of reconsiderations applications has been completed from May 2020 to March 2022, and payments will follow thereafter.“
The updating of the UIF database has brought relief to SACCOs, beneficiaries, and their respective members who have been affected by the delay. The process is still ongoing but it is expected that there will be an increase in the number of beneficiaries as those who have been previously declined may now get their claims approved. The UIF update is expected to benefit over half a million South Africans as more individuals will be able to apply for social grants, food parcels, and other entitlements due to the higher income limits.

We are pleased to inform you that the SASSA Reconsideration Process for the period May 2020 to March 2022 has been completed. No new applications will be considered for this period. This means that you must make a decision if your application needs reconsideration before submitting your application again in April 2020.
