The South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) released a list of reasons for why a R350 grant beneficiary’s application may have been declined, on Monday, 5 September.
In August, the income threshold for the R350 grant was raised to R624 – the food poverty line. This was a significant change as it allowed more people to qualify for the social assistance.
“SASSA welcomes this new development, and the agency is hopeful that a greater number of qualifying applicants will now have access to this grant; already at the beginning of August 2022 SASSA had received just under 12 million applications,” said the agency in a statement on 25 August.
