By Mothushi Thoka | 15 June 2024

Hey there, fellow South Africans! If you're receiving a SASSA grant, you might be wondering, "What's this reconfirmation thing all about?" Don't worry, we've got you covered! Let's break it down in simple terms and get you through the process smoothly.

Why Reconfirm? It's About You!

Think of reconfirmation like a quick check-in with SASSA. It helps them make sure your situation hasn't changed and that you still qualify for the grant.

It's super important because if you don't reconfirm, your payments could stop. We don't want that to happen, right?

How to Reconfirm: Step-by-Step

Don't stress, it's actually pretty simple. There are two main ways to do it:

1. Online: The Digital Way

  1. Head over to the official SASSA SRD website.
  2. Look for the "Reconfirm Existing Application" tab and click on it.
  3. Enter your ID number and phone number (the one you used to apply).
  4. Double-check all your information and make any necessary changes.
  5. Submit your reconfirmation – you're done!

2. USSD: Quick and Easy for Everyone

Don't have internet access? No problem! Use your phone's USSD code:

  1. Dial *134*7737# and follow the prompts.
  2. It'll guide you through entering your details and reconfirming.

When to Reconfirm: Timing is Key!

SASSA usually announces when it's time to reconfirm, so keep an eye on their website and official communication channels. It's usually done every few months.
