If you’re reading this, we’re guessing that you were unsuccessful in your first application for a SASSA R350 grant and want to know how to re-apply. If that’s the case, then we’ve got good news for you: it’s actually easier than it was last time! But before we get into all of that, let’s talk about what exactly SASSA grants are and how they work.
SASSA R350 Grant Reapplication 2022
If you were unsuccessful in your application for the SASSA R350 grant and want to reapply, it’s important that you do so as soon as possible. The sooner you apply, the more likely it is that your application will be approved, especially if your circumstances have changed since last year.
When applying for a re-grant, bring along all of the following documents:
- Bank statements from the past three months (if available)
- Proof of income (such as payslips) for each person applying for R350 grants in your household
To apply, you will need to bring the following documents:
Proof of identity, address and income. This can include a valid South African Identity Document (ID). If you do not have an ID, please see the attached list of acceptable forms of identification.
The date on which your grant was approved (or cancelled).
A copy of your medical aid card.
Information about all children living with you in your household who are younger than 18 years old – this includes their names and ages if possible.
If applicable, information regarding any person who is disabled or older than 65 years old living with you in your household – this includes their names and ages if possible.
If you have applied for the SASSA R350 Grant, but haven’t yet received the grant. Then now is the time to reapply. However, it is important that you do not make any errors in your application as this may result in delays or even a refusal of your application.
SASSA is currently only allowing applications via post, so applications can take up to five months to be processed. You will need to send your application to the correct address and include all required documents as well as a valid proof of identity.
The South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) has previously published an announcement stating that they will only accept SASSA R350 Grant Reapplication 2022 applications until 2023 January 31st 2019 at 23:59:59 SAST (South African Standard Time).
You can find out more on how to apply by visiting their website here http://www.sassaonline.co/apply-for-grants/.
If you were previously on a social grant, you may have received an SMS informing you about how to reapply for your grant. This is the same process that will be followed this time around as well. If you haven’t received any information from SASSA, then just follow these steps:
- Download the form
- Fill in all the required fields and then print it out
- Bring along original documents proving your identity and address (this includes either a birth certificate or passport)
SASSA grants are still very much needed in South Africa, and Re-applying for your SASSA grant is going to be more work than before. This means that it may take longer for you to receive the money that you need.
