How To Avoid A ‘Self Exclusionary’ SRD Grant Rejection | Several applicants were turned down for the R350 SRD award as a result of the manner they filled out the application. In order to prevent this from occurring to you when you apply for the award, follow these steps.
The Special Covid-19 Social Relief of Distress (SRD) grant has been rejected for the following reasons, according to the South African Social Security Agency (Sassa). “Self-exclusion” is one of the causes.
Self-exclusion is the result of applicants checking the following questions:
- Do you have a job?
- Do you receive a monthly salary greater than R350?
They disqualified themselves from the grant by responding positively to the aforementioned questions. There are two options available to those who feel they answered the questions incorrectly.
Applicants have two options: they either submit a fresh application form or utilize the site to edit the responses they provided while applying. In this situation, an appeal may also be filed.
Sassa applicants are urged not to submit appeals through the srd.sassa.gov.za website any longer. This is because the Independent Appeals Tribunal now handles appeals.
The Independent Tribunal reconsiders Sassa’s choice in light of the evidence at its disposal. The appeal will be resolved in between 60 and 90 days from the day it was received. The appeal’s outcome will subsequently be sent to applicants electronically.

Sassa will reevaluate the applicant each month to see whether they still qualify for the grant; as a result, an appeal application must be filed for each month in which the applicant’s request was denied by Sassa. Applicants are advised to file an appeal as soon as they learn they have been rejected.
The Independent Tribunal will review and revalidate the numerous databases utilized by Sassa, including the verification databases of insufficient means with banks, that may show income or other financial aid.
