SASSA FAILS UNEMPLOYED SOUTH AFRICANS

Unemployed South Africans have taken to social media their concerns about their pending applications for the Social Relief Grant.

The South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) received 5 million applications for the R350 special Covid-19 grant and 2,6 million applications were processed, the rest still pending.

Unemployed Xolani Nokusho said he applied in April 2020 and his application is still pending.

“Millions of applications are still pending and some of those which have been approved have not received the funds, while some are being declined.”

While millions of other applicants await their verdict, unlucky Percy Mzamo and Tshepang Hlakane, who have been unemployed for over 2 years, had their applications denied. According to Sassa, they have other sources of income.

Sassa Chief Executive Busisiwe Memela Khambula said the delays were caused by the verification process of the applications. They needed to ensure the applicants were not receiving other social grants or UIF benefits.

Sassa has reminded applicants that a pending status meant it is still being processed and is yet to be approved.

  1. In my opinion that a home foreclosure can have a major effect on the debtor’s life. Mortgage foreclosures can have a 6 to ten years negative relation to a borrower’s credit report. A new borrower having applied for home financing or any kind of loans as an example, knows that the particular worse credit rating is usually, the more difficult it is to secure a decent mortgage. In addition, it may affect a new borrower’s capability to find a really good place to lease or rent, if that gets to be the alternative housing solution. Interesting blog post.
