You may not be granted for the Social Relief of Distress (SRD) grant if your personal information is incorrect when you apply.
The Department of Home Affairs verifies the information you supply to the South African Social Security Agency (Sassa). Your ID number, name, and surname are all included in this information. This is why you must provide accurate information when applying for the SRD grant.
If your marital status has changed during the current grant payment cycle, your surname may not be accurate. This, as you may have changed it when you got married or divorced.
According to Sassa, it’s critical to check your marital status with the Department of Home Affairs and make sure your surname is correct. Failure to do so may result in the rejection of your SRD grant application.
