For candidates whose 350 SRD award has been rejected owing to UIF registration, SASSA has set up a procedure for appealing. Instead of going to the labor department, you can do this to process your appeal.
Visit https://srd.sassa.gov.za and enter the information requested:
The Department of Home Affairs or Identity Number Number of a refugee permit
Name, Surname, Gender, and Disability as they are listed on the Identity Document
Contact information Cellular number
As your information will be shared with other organizations and financial institutions, including SARS and banks, you will also need to sign a statement and consent form attesting to its legitimacy. The website has a thorough statement and consent document.
Also, applicants must use the WhatsApp number: 082 046 8553 or the Sassa website to validate their prior application.
Upon the filing of the appeal, SASSA will check your employment status with the UIF and notify you of the result.
Also, applicants are advised to call SASSA at their toll-free number, 0800 60 10 11, rather than going to labor centers, for assistance with this issue.
