Most SASSA Applicants normally find it a bit difficult to track their application status. Well in this piece we have outlined how an applicant can track his/her SASSA Grant application.
Below is a step by step guide as to how to track your SASSA status
First of all, one must visit SASSA official website https://srd.sassa.gov.za/sc19/status
- Go to the website
- Scroll down to ‘Application status’
- Click on ‘Click here to check online’
- Fill in the required fields
- You should then be able to see the status of your grant application
All applications will be treated as new applications every month. However, each applicant would only need to apply once for their application to be considered every month.
Here, you will be able to check the progress of your grant by entering first your ID number and then your cellphone number.
Who Qualifies For The Grant?
Applicants must be:
- South African Citizens, Permanent Residents or Refugees registered with Home Affairs;

SASSA does not require any applicant to scan in supporting documents such as ID, proof of address, or bank statements.
By lodging an application, applicants give consent for SASSA to validate the financial and other information against data sources held by government and financial institutions – including SA Revenue Services and banks.
The provision of false information in an effort to qualify for the grant is an offense and will result in prosecution.
