  57. Anonymous

    Now it has come to our attention why SASSA doesn’t want to pay or give us the R350 grants,its because their staff has defrauded the department,its now difficult for South Africans to get paid,we as South Africans must just forget about these SASSA grants, its so painful that foreigners are getting these grants instead of us South Africans fraud is a daily thing here.

    I have applied for the extended R350 but was declined. Status says alternative income source identified, but I am unemployed and not getting any money from any source. Please explain this to me. I have made the application via my mother’s cell as I do not have a phone.
    I was successful last year so I do not know what the problem is now.

  110. Khulile

    I applied for this R350 but it came out saying declined because I have a source of income but how because am unemployed for the past two years and when I apply for reconsideration and it doesn’t go through

  111. Kabelo Maake

    You know im starting to believe that we are being scammed here my last year’s application was declined bare UIF even now this new one for August is also declined because of UIF and i have been unemployed fot years now this is not fair really 😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢we need that money

  112. Maria kgakwa

    I’ve never received any payment from anywhere but sassa says I have income try the reconsideration site it fails.
    Why is that happening to most of people who really need that money?

  113. xolelwa

    i applied for the previous cycle of the grant and was successful i received payment from post office for several months but, i also applied for the new cycle in august 2021 results say i am uif registered i never worked before how can it be i am uif registered now i am confused course i don’t work and depends on this social grant please assist. i am sure that the sassa system must have had confuse my application with someone else.

  114. Bax

    I think this is just a scam. Gov is not fair on all of is we are being decided because some people are receiving this grant and the others are not. If they say you had an income in the past 18months what do they mean? And sometimes it will reflect that u have unclaimed UIF do they check how long u’ve worked before they say that, because some people have worked for a short period of time of which their uif pay out will be less how will they expect a people of such to survive. Gov is just a scam man. Thy only want our votes.

  115. Yongamela gica

    It clearly shows that corruption will never end I mean how can they mention uif while we not working , y cant we be granted what’s promised to us … y

  116. Marius Scheepers

    Im extremely disappointed in this whole process,no! actually livid,After finally being able to check my status online(seeing that,the status button was “supposedly deactivated”,because of the influx of applications…The system indicated I am approved,payday on the 1st September and filed the 31st.Only to get to the one Post Office,who conveniently had posters up:”No payments until further notice”,but has been paying out for the past couple of days!
    Then I had to go to the next post office,which cost me traveling money,only for the teller to inform me that “SASSA, has NOT,NOT OPENED MY ACCOUNT WITH THE POST OFFICE YET,even though I have been approved,with a payday!!!!!

  135. Portia

    My application was approved but I didn’t receive my payment coz I have finished my banking details but it now it says post office mxm our government is playing with our minds coz others received their own money so what about us coz they should have told us to go straight to post office coz we’re here waiting for our bank notification but dololo

I am unemployed since December 2016 with no income and I have lost my husband due to Covid 4 months ago.

This doesnt mean that I am employed.

    Kindly reconsider my application as I am struggling with no source of income. I can send proof from DOL that I am not registered. Kindly reconsider my application I beg of you I need the money to take care of myself and my family.

    I applied in the middle of May. I don’t work. I don’t get a disability grant. I don’t get UIF payments although I have registered a case against a previous employer at the local DoL. When I check the status, I just see “Failed”. There is no pending, approved or disapproved notification. We are into July and nothing has happened. I meet all the criteria for this grant. WHAT IS GOING ON!?
