SASSA reconsideration is a process that allows applicants to request a review of a decision made by SASSA regarding their application for a social grant. If an applicant is dissatisfied with the decision made by SASSA, they can request a reconsideration to have the decision reviewed and possibly overturned.
The SRD reconsideration process involves submitting a written request to SASSA. It must outline the reasons why the applicant is requesting a review of the decision. The request must be submitted within 90 days of receiving the decision.
How to Make a SASSA SRD Reapplication
To make a SASSA SRD reapplication, follow these steps:
- Check if you are eligible: Before reapplying, make sure to check the SASSA website or visit a SASSA office to confirm that you still meet the eligibility criteria for the grant.
- Prepare your supporting documents: Gather any supporting documents that you will need to submit with your reapplication, such as your ID document, proof of address, and bank details.
- Apply online: You can apply for the SRD grant reapplication online via the SASSA website or the Department of Social Development’s online portal. Make sure to fill in all the required information and upload your supporting documents.
- Apply via WhatsApp: You can also apply for the SRD grant reapplication via WhatsApp by sending the word “COVID” to the SASSA WhatsApp number 082 046 8553. Follow the prompts and provide all the necessary information.
- Apply in-person: If you prefer to apply in-person, you can submit your reapplication form and supporting documents at a SASSA office or a designated post office. You can get the application form from a SASSA office or download it from the SASSA website.
- Wait for a response: After submitting your reapplication, wait for SASSA to review your application and notify you of the outcome. This may take several weeks, so be patient.
It’s important to note that the SRD grant is a temporary grant that is subject to availability of funds and may be discontinued or extended based on government decisions. If your reapplication is successful, you will receive payment for the period specified by SASSA.
What if my SASSA Reconsideration Application is Declined?
If your SASSA request for reconsideration is declined, you still have the option to appeal the decision through the SASSA internal appeal process or through a court of law.
If you are dissatisfied with the outcome of your request for reconsideration, you can request an internal appeal. You can do this by submitting a written request to the SASSA Regional Executive Manager within 90 days of receiving the reconsideration outcome.
In your request, you must state the reasons why you are dissatisfied with the outcome of the reconsideration and provide any new evidence that you want to be considered. SASSA will review your request and provide you with a final decision within 30 days.
If you are not satisfied with the internal appeal decision, you may consider taking your case to a court of law. You may need to seek legal advice on the appropriate court to approach and the procedures to follow.
It’s important to note that you must have valid grounds for appealing the SASSA decision, and any new evidence you present must be relevant to your case. It’s also crucial to ensure that you follow the appropriate procedures and timeframes when making an appeal to have the best chance of success.
