What To Do When You Receive A ‘Debtor’ Sassa SRD Status

SASSA SRD status checks might reveal that your R350 grant status is ‘debtor’, but what does that mean?Having ‘debtor’ status on a Social Relief Distress (SRD) grant simply means that the agency discovered the beneficiary’s other sources of income, so the beneficiary was receiving undeserved aid at the time.

The South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) has audited its beneficiaries to determine whether they were eligible for the money received previously.

This occurred when the applicant didn’t qualify for the grant, according to the Auditor-General’s report.Sassa said in such a case people would receive an SMS notification or be able to check the ‘debtor’ SRD status on the Sassa website or WhatsApp – the beneficiary would then be responsible for paying back the debt.

Beneficiaries are urged to pay back Sassa before they qualify for the next round of payments. Once all R350s have been recovered, payments will resume if you still qualify.

If you receive this status, you cannot appeal.

If you are not satisfied with your ‘debtor’ status, SASSA advises you to email [email protected] or call 0800 60 10 11.
