SASSA Status Check: "Reapplication Pending" – Your July 2024 Guide

If you see the status "Reapplication Pending" on your SASSA SRD grant check, it means SASSA has received your new application for the upcoming grant cycle. Here's what you need to know as of July 2024:

What "Reapplication Pending" Means:

The "Reapplication Pending" status simply indicates that SASSA has successfully received your new application for the SRD grant. It doesn't necessarily mean your application is approved or declined yet. SASSA is currently in the process of reviewing your information and verifying your eligibility for the new grant period.

Why Reapplication is Necessary:

The SASSA SRD grant is not automatically renewed. Each grant cycle (usually lasting a few months) requires a fresh application, even if you received the grant previously. This allows SASSA to reassess your eligibility based on the most recent criteria and ensure that the grant reaches those who need it most in 2024.

What Happens Next?

Once your reapplication is received, SASSA will begin the review process, which can take several weeks. During this time, your status will likely remain as "Reapplication Pending." SASSA will assess your eligibility based on the latest criteria for 2024, which may include income verification and other checks. If you are approved, your status will change accordingly, and you can expect to receive payment according to the new grant cycle's schedule.

What You Can Do While Waiting (July 2024):

  • Be Patient: The review process takes time. Don't panic and avoid resubmitting your application, as this can cause confusion and further delay the process.
  • Check Your Status Regularly: Keep checking your status on the SASSA website (, through their WhatsApp number (082 046 8553), or by using the USSD code (*134*7737#) for updates.
  • Contact SASSA (If Necessary): If you have concerns or haven't received an update after a significant period, you can contact SASSA directly for assistance using their helpline (0800 60 10 11).
