SASSA WhatsApp Number

SASSA has introduced a WhatsApp support service for South African applicants. This service allows individuals to check their SASSA status and seek assistance with other matters related to social grants and SRD R350 applications.

SASSA WhatsApp Number

You can add the SASSA WhatsApp number, “0820468553,” to apply for the SRD R350 grant, check your application status, and access information related to grant issues. This is the only official Sassa WhatsApp number that is used to submit your R350 applications, check your status and communicate to resolve problems if your grant is not received.

Applying for SASSA R350 Grant

The official SASSA WhatsApp number serves as a convenient way to apply for the R350 grant. Instead of navigating complex forms and procedures, you can apply with just a few taps on your phone. Here’s how you can use WhatsApp to apply for a Sassa grant.

  1. Save the SASSA WhatsApp number, “0820468553,” as a contact on your phone.
  2. Open a chat with Sassa on WhatsApp.
  3. Send a message saying ‘SASSA’ to initiate the application process.
  4. You will receive a prompt, reply with ‘SRD R350 Application.’
  5. Provide your details and submit a complete application form.

Check SASSA R350 Grant Status

The SASSA R350 grant, often referred to as the SRD (Social Relief of Distress) grant, is an important financial support for many South Africans.

To use WhatsApp for the SASSA R350 grant status check, you will need to follow these steps.

  1. Open your saved chat with Sassa Whatsapp.
  2. Send a message by typing ‘SASSA.’
  3. When prompted, reply with ‘SRD R350 Status’
  4. You will receive a report about your R350 grant application status.

This will prompt the system to provide you with the current status of your SASSA application, helping you stay informed every step of the way.
