R350 Grant Applications : Sassa To Review Declined R350 Grant Applications. SASSA has made the decision to reconsider rejected applications from those who were declined by the Unemployment Insurance Fund (UIF).
In June, SASSA recorded that 50% of the applicants who applied for the grant did not qualify. More than 70% of those who did not qualify were rejected because they qualified to get benefits from the UIF.

It has now been found that majority of the applications that were rejected by the UIF actually do qualify for SASSA.
SASSA is in the process of contacting those who qualify. They will receive an SMS asking them to provide banking details.
The SMS will be followed by a link, which cannot be shared with others.
SASSA has said it has paid more than 2.5 million of the applicants who applied for the grant.
Totsie Memela, Sassa CEO said “Updating the UIF database has brought such a relief to us and the affected beneficiaries, the numbers will rise daily until we have paid all deserving individuals who were previously declined”.
Memela said SASSA is still working to finalise the appeals process for those hoping to apply to appeal their rejected applications.
