How to Apply for SASSA Grant

In order to access or to have the application reconsidered for the Social Relief of Distress Grant, an applicant must grant consent for SASSA to verify his or her identity, residency, income, or social security benefits.

Applicants will also need to accept the declaration and consent.

The new process will now request the applicants to provide their banking details upfront so that SASSA can process R350 grant payments as soon as they meet the criteria.

It is not necessary to submit multiple applications. Confirmation will be received as soon as the application has been successfully submitted.

Those individuals who applied for the grant in the previous round will have to re-apply. Clients who previously canceled the grant, and who would like to re-activate the grant, due to a change in their circumstances are welcome to re-apply.

Zulu continued to say, “We encourage all applicants to conclude their applications when they start making the applications to avoid any technical challenges”.
