Reason Behind Your ‘Pending’ Or ‘Rejected’ R350 Grant Application 

There are various stages in processing your SRD 350 application. If the status shows pending or rejected, it might be due to multiple reasons. For instance, the information you have put in might be wrong. If this is the case, then you will have to request an appeal to SASSA to verify and update your correct information. In the case of a rejected application, the applicant might have inconsistent income flow in a specific period, which he failed to mention. Another reason can be that the applicant is already receiving relief from SASSA for another purpose. It could also be because of age requirements.
