In order to access or have your SRD grant application reviewed, an applicant must allow Sassa to verify their identity, residence, income, or Social Security benefits. Applicants will also be required to agree to the Declaration and Consent.
Sassa said any customers who reapplied using srd.sassa.gov.za should not reapply on WhatsApp.
It has been reported that every month, clients will undergo the SRD Grant Means Test to ensure that the recipient is still eligible for the grant. Sassa confirmed that he would do so by using financial banks to test his means.
Additionally, clients were asked to check the website every 3 months to answer a few questions that help the Agency know if the person still needs the grant.
